A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the right login credentials are offered. This may be an entire Internet site or just a single page which is in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this kind of a directory, you will see a browser pop-up in which you have to input a username and also a password. If you type in the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue exploring the content without needing to do anything more. In case the login credentials aren't correct, however, you shall see a note that you aren't authorized to view the content. If this option is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The feature is extremely useful if you wish 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 is ready.
