A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the right login details are supplied. This can be an entire site or only a single page which is in a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you'll see an Internet browser pop-up in which you will have to input a username and a password. If you type the correct ones, you will be able to continue surfing around the content without needing to do anything more. In case the login credentials aren't accurate, however, you'll see a message that you aren't permitted to view the content. If this option is activated, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The feature is incredibly handy if you wish to prohibit the access to some content or if you work on a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
