A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the correct login credentials are provided. This can be a whole site or just a single page that's situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this kind of a directory, you will see a browser pop-up in which you will have to type a username and a password. If you enter the correct ones, you can continue browsing the content with no need to do anything more. When the login details are not right, however, you shall see a note that you aren't permitted to view the content. When this feature is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The function is extremely handy if you want 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 prior to it being ready.
