A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the proper login credentials are supplied. This may be an entire Internet site or only one page which is 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 and also a password. In case you enter the appropriate ones, you will be able to continue browsing the content without the need to do anything extra. In case the login credentials are not right, however, you shall see information that you are not permitted to view the content. If this feature is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The option is extremely practical if you'd like to limit the access to some content or if you are creating a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
