A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the proper login details are supplied. This may be a whole site or only one page which is in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you will see a web browser pop-up in which you have to type a username and also a password. If you type the right ones, you'll be able to continue surfing around the content with no need to do anything else. In case the login credentials aren't right, however, you shall see information that you are not permitted to view the content. When this function is active, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The option is very useful if you want 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.
