A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the correct login details are supplied. This could be a whole website or only one page that's located in a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you shall see a browser pop-up in which you will need to input a username as well as a password. If you type in the right ones, you will be able to continue surfing around the content without having to do anything extra. When the login details are not correct, however, you will see a note that you aren't authorized to see the content. If this option is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The feature is extremely effective if you'd like to prohibit the access to some content or if you are creating a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
