A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the correct login details are provided. This can be an entire website or just one page that is situated in a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you will see a browser pop-up where you must enter a username and a password. In case you enter the right ones, you will be able to continue surfing around the content without needing to do anything extra. If the login details aren't correct, however, you'll see a note that you aren't authorized to view the content. When this feature is activated, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The option is very useful if you need to restrict the access to some content or if you are creating a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
