A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the correct login details are provided. This could be a whole Internet site or simply one page that is located within a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you shall see an Internet browser pop-up where you will have to input a username as well as a password. If you type in the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content without the need to do anything additional. When the login details aren't accurate, however, you'll see a note that you aren't allowed to see the content. In case this feature is activated, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The function is extremely effective if you need to prohibit the access to some content or if you are developing an Internet site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
