A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the correct login credentials are provided. This may be a whole site or only one page which is situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you'll see a browser pop-up in which you will need to enter a username as well as a password. In case you enter the correct ones, you will be able to continue browsing the content with no need to do anything extra. When the login details aren't accurate, however, you will see a message that you are not permitted to view the content. If this feature is active, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The option is extremely practical if you'd like to limit the access to some content or if you work on a site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
