A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the right login credentials are offered. This could be a whole website or only a single page which is located within a subfolder. If you attempt to open this kind of a directory, you'll see a browser pop-up in which you will need to input a username as well as a password. In case you type in the correct ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content with no need to do anything extra. If the login credentials are not correct, however, you'll see a note that you are not authorized to see the content. In case this option is active, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The option is quite practical if you need to prohibit the access to some content or if you work on an Internet site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
