A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login credentials are provided. This could be an entire Internet site or just one page which is located within a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you shall see a browser pop-up in which you will have to type in a username and a password. If you enter the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue exploring the content without the need to do anything extra. In case the login credentials aren't correct, however, you'll see information that you are not allowed to see the content. In case this function is activated, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The function is extremely practical if you'd like to prohibit the access to some content or if you work on a site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
