A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the correct login details are provided. This may be an entire website or only a single page that's in a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you shall see a browser pop-up in which you will have to type a username and also a password. If you type in the correct ones, you'll be able to continue exploring the content without needing to do anything more. When the login credentials aren't accurate, however, you'll see a message that you aren't allowed to view the content. If this option is active, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The feature is incredibly effective if you wish to restrict the access to some content or if you work on a site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
