A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the right login credentials are offered. This could be an entire website or simply a single page which is located in a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you'll see a browser pop-up where you have to enter a username as well as a password. If you input the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue exploring the content without having to do anything more. In case the login details aren't right, however, you shall see a message that you are not permitted to see the content. In case this function is active, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The function is very handy if you want to restrict the access to some content or if you are developing a site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
