A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login details are supplied. This could be a whole Internet site or just a single page which is located within a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you'll see a browser pop-up where you will have to enter a username and also a password. In case you input the right ones, you can continue surfing around the content without needing to do anything more. If the login details aren't correct, however, you will see information that you are not authorized to see the content. If this feature is activated, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The function is incredibly practical if you want to prohibit the access to some content or if you are creating a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
