A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the right login credentials are supplied. This could be an entire Internet site or simply a single page that is situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you'll see a browser pop-up in which you have to enter a username and also a password. In case you type in the appropriate ones, you can continue surfing around the content with no need to do anything additional. If the login details are not right, however, you'll see a note that you are not permitted to view the content. If this function is active, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The feature is extremely effective if you need to restrict the access to some content or if you are creating a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
