A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login credentials are supplied. This can be an entire Internet site or only one page that's located in a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you'll see a web browser pop-up where you will need to type a username as well as a password. In case you input the right ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content without the need to do anything extra. When the login details are not right, however, you will see a note that you are not permitted to see the content. If this feature is activated, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The feature is incredibly useful if you wish to restrict the access to some content or if you are developing a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
