A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the correct login credentials are offered. This may be a whole website or simply one 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 will have to input a username and also a password. If you input the correct ones, you'll be able to continue exploring the content without the need to do anything more. In case the login details are not correct, however, you will see a message that you aren't allowed to look at the content. If this feature is activated, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The function is incredibly handy if you need 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.
