A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the right login details are provided. This can be an entire site or just a single page that is located in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you will see a browser pop-up where you have to enter a username as well as a password. If you enter the appropriate ones, you can continue surfing around the content without having to do anything additional. When the login credentials aren't accurate, however, you shall see a note that you aren't allowed to view the content. In case this option is active, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The function is incredibly practical if you need to prohibit the access to some content or if you are creating an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
