A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the right login details are provided. This could be a whole site or just a single page that is situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you'll see an Internet browser pop-up in which you have to type a username and a password. In case you type in the right ones, you will be able to continue exploring the content with no need to do anything extra. If the login details are not right, however, you will see a note that you are not allowed to look at the content. If this option is activated, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The function is incredibly effective if you need to limit the access to some content or if you work on an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
