A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the right login credentials are offered. This could be an entire site or simply a single page which is located in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you'll see an Internet browser pop-up in which you must type in a username and also a password. If you input the right ones, you can continue browsing the content without needing to do anything more. If the login details aren't correct, however, you will see a message that you are not allowed to view the content. In case this option is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The feature is quite useful if you wish to restrict the access to some content or if you are developing an Internet site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
