A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the correct login details are provided. This could be an entire Internet site or simply a single page that's in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you will see a web browser pop-up where you will have to type a username and a password. In case you enter the right ones, you will be able to continue browsing the content with no need to do anything more. When the login details aren't right, however, you'll see information that you are not permitted to view the content. In case this option is activated, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The function is very practical if you'd like to prohibit the access to some content or if you are creating an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
