A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the right login credentials are provided. This may be an entire Internet site or only one page that is situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you'll see a web browser pop-up in which you will need to enter a username and also a password. If you input the correct ones, you can continue browsing the content with no need to do anything extra. If the login credentials aren't accurate, however, you will see a note that you are not allowed to see the content. If this function is activated, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The function is very useful if you need to restrict the access to some content or if you work on a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
