A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the correct login credentials are provided. This could be an entire Internet site or only a single page which is in a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you'll see a browser pop-up in which you must type a username and a password. If you input the right ones, you can continue browsing the content without having to do anything else. When the login details aren't accurate, however, you shall see information that you are not authorized to view the content. When this option is active, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The feature is very practical if you'd like to restrict the access to some content or if you are developing an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
