A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the correct login credentials are offered. This may be an entire website or simply one page that's situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you will see a browser pop-up in which you must enter a username and also a password. If you enter the correct ones, you can continue exploring the content without the need to do anything else. In case the login credentials are not right, however, you will see a message that you aren't permitted to look at the content. If this option is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The option is very handy if you want to limit the access to some content or if you are developing a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
