A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the proper login credentials are provided. This can be a whole website or simply one page which is located in a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you shall see an Internet browser pop-up in which you must input a username and also a password. If you type in the right ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content without the need to do anything else. When the login details aren't correct, however, you will see a message that you are not allowed to look at the content. If this feature is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The function is very handy if you wish to prohibit the access to some content or if you are creating an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
