A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the proper login credentials are offered. This can be an entire site or simply one page which is in a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you shall see an Internet browser pop-up in which you have to input a username and a password. In case you enter the appropriate ones, you can continue exploring the content with no need to do anything more. In case the login credentials are not correct, however, you'll see a note that you are not allowed to view the content. If this function is active, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The function is extremely handy if you wish to restrict the access to some content or if you are developing an Internet site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
