A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the correct login details are supplied. This may be a whole website or only a single page that is in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you'll see an Internet browser pop-up in which you have to input a username and also a password. In case you type the appropriate ones, you will be able to continue surfing around the content without having to do anything extra. If the login credentials aren't right, however, you shall see a message that you aren't allowed to see the content. In case this feature is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The option is extremely useful if you'd like to prohibit the access to some content or if you are developing a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
