A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the proper login details are supplied. This could be a whole website or just one page that is situated in a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you'll see a browser pop-up in which you must type in a username as well as a password. In case you input the right ones, you can continue exploring the content without needing to do anything more. In case the login credentials are not right, however, you'll see information that you aren't allowed to look at the content. In case this function is activated, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The feature is extremely handy if you want to prohibit the access to some content or if you are developing a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
