A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the right login details are offered. This can be an entire website or just one page that is in a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you'll see a browser pop-up in which you have to type in a username and a password. If you type in the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue surfing around the content without the need to do anything else. In case the login details are not right, however, you shall see information that you are not allowed to look at the content. In case this option is activated, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The function is incredibly effective if you wish to limit the access to some content or if you are creating a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
