A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the correct login details are offered. This can be an entire website or only a single page that's situated in a subfolder. If you try to open this type of a directory, you will see a web browser pop-up where you must enter a username and a password. In case you input the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue surfing around the content with no need to do anything additional. In case the login credentials aren't correct, however, you will see information that you are not authorized to see the content. When this feature is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The feature is quite handy if you want to restrict 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 is ready.
