A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the right login details are supplied. This could be a whole site or simply a single page that's located within a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you will see a browser pop-up where you will need to input a username as well as a password. In case you type the appropriate ones, you will be able to continue browsing the content without having to do anything more. If the login credentials aren't correct, however, you'll see information that you aren't authorized to look at the content. If this feature is active, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The feature is very effective if you want to prohibit the access to some content or if you work on a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
