A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login details are offered. This could be an entire Internet site or only a single page which is situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this kind of a directory, you'll see an Internet browser pop-up in which you will have to enter a username and a password. In case you input the appropriate ones, you will be able to continue surfing around the content without the need to do anything additional. In case the login credentials are not accurate, however, you will see a message that you are not allowed to view the content. In case this option is activated, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The function is very handy if you'd like to prohibit the access to some content or if you work on an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
