A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the proper login credentials are supplied. This may be an entire website or simply one page that's located within a subfolder. If you attempt to open this kind of a directory, you'll see a web browser pop-up in which you will have to type a username and also a password. In case you type in the right ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content without the need to do anything more. If the login credentials are not right, however, you'll see a message that you are not permitted to look at the content. If this feature is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The option is quite practical if you need to prohibit the access to some content or if you are creating a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
