A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the right login credentials are supplied. This could be a whole site or just one page which is situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you will see a browser pop-up in which you have to input a username as well as a password. If you enter the correct ones, you can continue exploring the content without needing to do anything extra. When the login details aren't right, however, you shall see a message that you aren't allowed to view the content. If this feature is activated, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The option is extremely handy if you wish to restrict the access to some content or if you are creating an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
