A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the proper login details are supplied. This can be an entire website or only a single page that is situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you shall see a web browser pop-up where you have to type in a username and a password. In case you type in the right ones, you can continue browsing the content without the need to do anything else. If the login credentials are not correct, however, you will see a message that you are not permitted to view the content. When this function is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The feature is quite effective if you'd like to prohibit 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 prior to it being ready.
