A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the correct login details are supplied. This may be an entire site or only a single page that is located within a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you'll see a web browser pop-up in which you have to input a username and also a password. If you type the correct ones, you'll be able to continue surfing around the content without having to do anything extra. When the login credentials aren't accurate, however, you shall see a message that you aren't authorized to look at the content. When this option is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The feature is incredibly handy if you wish to limit the access to some content or if you are creating a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
