A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the proper login credentials are provided. This may be an entire Internet site or simply a single page that's located in a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you shall see a web browser pop-up where you must enter a username as well as a password. If you type in the appropriate ones, you can continue surfing around the content with no need to do anything more. If the login details are not correct, however, you will see a note that you are not allowed to see the content. If this function is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The feature is very useful if you'd like to restrict the access to some content or if you are developing a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
