A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the right login credentials are offered. This can be an entire site or simply one page that is located within a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you will see a web browser pop-up in which you must input a username and a password. If you type the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content with no need to do anything more. When the login details aren't accurate, however, you shall see information that you aren't allowed to look at the content. If this function is activated, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The option is extremely effective if you'd like to limit the access to some content or if you are creating a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
