A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the correct login details are offered. This can be a whole website or only a single page which is situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you shall see a web browser pop-up in which you will need to enter a username and also a password. In case you input the appropriate ones, you can continue exploring the content without having to do anything else. If the login details aren't correct, however, you will see a note that you aren't allowed to look at the content. When this feature is activated, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The feature is quite useful if you'd like to restrict the access to some content or if you are creating a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
