A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the correct login details are provided. This could be an entire site or just one page which is located in a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you will see an Internet browser pop-up where you have to enter a username and a password. In case you input the right ones, you will be able to continue surfing around the content with no need to do anything else. When the login credentials aren't accurate, however, you shall see a note that you aren't authorized to look at the content. When this option is active, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The option is incredibly effective if you want to prohibit the access to some content or if you are creating a site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
