A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the correct login credentials are offered. This can be a whole website or only one page which is in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this kind of a directory, you shall see a browser pop-up in which you must input a username and also a password. In case you input the correct ones, you'll be able to continue exploring the content with no need to do anything additional. When the login details are not right, however, you will see information that you are not permitted 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 useful if you'd like to limit the access to some content or if you are developing a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
