A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login credentials are supplied. This can be a whole site or just one page that is situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this kind of a directory, you will see a web browser pop-up where you have to type in a username as well as a password. If you input the correct ones, you will be able to continue surfing around the content without needing to do anything else. In case the login credentials aren't correct, however, you'll see a message that you are not allowed to view the content. When this option is active, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The feature is quite handy if you'd like to restrict the access to some content or if you are creating an Internet site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
