A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the proper login credentials are supplied. This could be an entire website or just one page that is located within a subfolder. If you attempt to open this kind of a directory, you will see a browser pop-up where you will need to input a username and also a password. If you type in the right ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content without the need to do anything extra. If the login details are not correct, however, you'll see a message that you aren't allowed to look at the content. When this option is active, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The function is incredibly handy if you want to prohibit the access to some content or if you are developing a site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
