A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the correct login credentials are provided. This could be an entire website or just one page that is in a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you will see a browser pop-up where you will need to type a username as well as a password. In case you enter the right ones, you will be able to continue exploring the content without the need to do anything else. When the login details aren't right, however, you shall see a note that you aren't allowed to look at the content. When this option is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The function is incredibly practical if you need to limit the access to some content or if you work on a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
