A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the right login details are provided. This can be a whole site or simply one page that's in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you'll see a browser pop-up in which you must type in a username as well as a password. In case you enter the right ones, you will be able to continue surfing around the content without the need to do anything more. In case the login credentials aren't right, however, you'll see information that you are not allowed to look at the content. In case this function is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The feature is incredibly handy if you wish to limit the access to some content or if you are developing a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
