A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the right login credentials are provided. This may be a whole Internet site or only a single page which is situated in a subfolder. If you try to open this kind of a directory, you shall see an Internet browser pop-up where you will have to type in a username and a password. If you input the right ones, you will be able to continue exploring the content without the need to do anything extra. In case the login details aren't right, however, you shall see a note that you are not authorized to view the content. In case this option is activated, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The function is very effective if you wish to restrict the access to some content or if you are creating a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
