A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the right login details are offered. This can be an entire website or just a single page which is located within a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you shall see a browser pop-up where you will need to type in a username as well as a password. If you enter the right ones, you can continue surfing around the content without having to do anything additional. If the login details are not correct, however, you will see information that you are not authorized to view 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 feature is incredibly practical if you wish to limit the access to some content or if you work on an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
