A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the right login details are provided. This could be an entire Internet site or just a single page that's situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you'll see a web browser pop-up where you will have to enter a username and also a password. In case you enter the right ones, you can continue exploring the content without the need to do anything more. If the login details aren't accurate, however, you will see a message that you aren't authorized to see the content. When this option is activated, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The feature is quite handy if you'd like to prohibit 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.
