A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the proper login details are offered. This could be an entire site or only one page that's situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you'll see a browser pop-up in which you will need to input a username as well as a password. In case you type the appropriate ones, you will be able to continue surfing around the content without needing to do anything else. When the login details are not correct, however, you'll see a note that you aren't authorized to view the content. When this feature is activated, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The function is incredibly useful if you need to prohibit the access to some content or if you work on an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
