A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the right login details are offered. This can be a whole website or only one page that is in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this kind of a directory, you will see a web browser pop-up in which you have to enter a username and also a password. In case you input the correct ones, you'll be able to continue exploring the content without needing to do anything additional. If the login details aren't right, however, you will see a message that you aren't allowed to see the content. If this option is active, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The option is extremely handy if you'd like to restrict the access to some content or if you are developing a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
