A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login details are supplied. This may be an entire website or just one page that's situated in a subfolder. If you try to open this type of a directory, you'll see an Internet browser pop-up where you have to type a username and also a password. In case you enter the correct ones, you can continue surfing around the content without the need to do anything extra. In case the login credentials are not right, however, you'll see a message that you aren't authorized to see the content. In case this option is activated, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The function is very handy if you want 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 prior to it being ready.
