A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the correct login credentials are supplied. This may be a whole website or simply a single page which is in a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you'll see a browser pop-up where you will need to input a username and a password. In case you type in the right ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content without needing to do anything more. If the login credentials are not correct, however, you will see a message that you aren't allowed to look at the content. When this function is active, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The feature is quite useful if you'd like to limit the access to some content or if you work on a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
