A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the right login details are provided. This can be a whole Internet site or only one page that is in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you shall see an Internet browser pop-up in which you must input a username as well as a password. If you enter the correct ones, you will be able to continue browsing the content without needing to do anything additional. If the login details are not right, however, you shall see information that you aren't permitted to look at the content. When this function is activated, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The function is incredibly handy if you need to limit the access to some content or if you are developing a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
