A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the correct login details are provided. This may be an entire Internet site or just one page that is in a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you shall see a web browser pop-up in which you will need to type in a username as well as a password. If you input the appropriate ones, you will be able to continue browsing the content with no need to do anything additional. In case the login details aren't accurate, however, you will see information that you are not authorized to view the content. If this option is activated, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The function is incredibly effective if you need to limit the access to some content or if you are creating a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
