A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the right login credentials are provided. This can be an entire site or just a single page that is located within a subfolder. If you try to open this kind of a directory, you will see a web browser pop-up where you have to enter a username and a password. In case you enter the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue surfing around the content without the need to do anything extra. If the login details are not accurate, however, you will see information that you are not permitted to see the content. When this feature is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The feature is very effective if you need to limit the access to some content or if you are creating a site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
