A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the right login credentials are offered. This may be a whole site or only a single page which is situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this kind of a directory, you'll see a browser pop-up where you must enter a username as well as a password. In case you type in the right ones, you can continue exploring the content without needing to do anything additional. If the login credentials aren't right, however, you'll see information that you are not permitted to see the content. In case this feature is activated, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The feature is very handy if you'd like to limit the access to some content or if you are developing a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
