A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the correct login details are provided. This could be an entire website or only one page that's situated in a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you shall see a web browser pop-up in which you must type in a username and a password. In case you enter the correct ones, you will be able to continue surfing around the content without the need to do anything additional. If the login credentials aren't right, however, you'll see a note that you are not authorized to look at the content. In case this function is active, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The function is quite practical if you'd like to prohibit the access to some content or if you are developing a site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
