A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the right login credentials are supplied. This may be a whole site or only a single page that is located in a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you will see an Internet browser pop-up in which you will have to enter a username and also a password. In case you enter the appropriate ones, you will be able to continue exploring the content without needing to do anything additional. If the login credentials aren't right, however, you'll see a note that you are not permitted to view the content. In case this feature is activated, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The option is incredibly practical if you want 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 prior to it being ready.
