A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the right login details are provided. This may be a whole Internet site or simply one page that is located in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this kind of a directory, you'll see a web browser pop-up in which you will need to enter a username and also a password. If you type the right ones, you can continue browsing the content without having to do anything more. In case the login details aren't correct, however, you will see a note that you are not permitted to look at the content. In case this function is active, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The feature is quite practical if you want to prohibit the access to some content or if you are creating a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
