A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the proper login details are provided. This can be a whole website or just one page that's situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you'll see an Internet browser pop-up in which you must type a username as well as a password. In case you type the correct ones, you will be able to continue exploring the content without having to do anything else. If the login credentials aren't correct, however, you will see a note that you are not permitted to view the content. In case this feature is active, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The function is very effective if you need to limit the access to some content or if you are creating a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
