A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login details are offered. This may be a whole website or only one page that's located within a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you will see a browser pop-up in which you will have to input a username as well as a password. If you type the correct ones, you can continue exploring the content without having to do anything else. When the login details are not correct, however, you will see information that you aren't authorized to view the content. If this option is active, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The feature is extremely practical if you wish to limit the access to some content or if you are creating a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
