A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the correct login details are provided. This can be a whole website or simply a single page which is situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you shall see a web browser pop-up where you will have to enter a username and also a password. In case you type the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content with no need to do anything additional. If the login details aren't right, however, you shall see information that you are not allowed to look at the content. If this feature is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The option is quite effective if you'd like to limit the access to some content or if you work on a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
