A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the correct login details are offered. This can be a whole site or only a single page that is located within a subfolder. If you try to open this type of a directory, you'll see a browser pop-up in which you have to enter a username and a password. In case you type in the correct ones, you can continue browsing the content without having to do anything else. If the login details aren't correct, however, you will see a note that you aren't allowed to view the content. When this function is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The feature is quite effective if you need to restrict the access to some content or if you work on a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
