A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the correct login details are supplied. This can be a whole Internet site or only a single page that is situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you'll see a browser pop-up in which you must type in a username as well as a password. In case you enter the correct ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content without having to do anything extra. When the login details are not correct, however, you will see information that you are not allowed to look at the content. If this function is active, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The function is extremely handy if you need to restrict 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.
