A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the correct login credentials are offered. This can be a whole Internet site or simply a single page which is in a subfolder. If you try to open this kind of a directory, you shall see a browser pop-up where you will need to type in a username as well as a password. If you input the right ones, you will be able to continue exploring the content without having to do anything extra. In case the login details are not correct, however, you will see a note that you are not allowed to see the content. In case this option is active, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The option is extremely useful if you'd like to restrict the access to some content or if you work on an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
