A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login details are provided. This can be a whole site or simply a single page which is located in a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you will see a web browser pop-up in which you must type in a username as well as a password. If you type the right ones, you can continue browsing the content with no need to do anything additional. In case the login credentials aren't correct, however, you will see a note that you aren't authorized to look at the content. In case this feature is activated, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The feature is extremely handy if you need to prohibit the access to some content or if you are creating an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
