A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the proper login credentials are offered. This can be a whole Internet site or just a single page that's located in a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you will see a web browser pop-up where you must enter a username and also a password. In case you input the appropriate ones, you can continue browsing the content without the need to do anything additional. In case the login details are not correct, however, you will see a message that you aren't allowed to see the content. In case this function is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The option is incredibly practical if you wish 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's ready.
