A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the proper login details are offered. This may be an entire Internet site or simply a single page that is in a subfolder. If you try to open this type of a directory, you will see a web browser pop-up in which you have to type a username as well as a password. If you input the correct ones, you can continue surfing around the content without needing to do anything else. In case the login details aren't correct, however, you will see a note that you are not authorized to see the content. In case this function is activated, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The function is incredibly useful if you need to limit the access to some content or if you work on a site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
