A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the proper login details are provided. This can be a whole site or simply one page that's located within a subfolder. If you try to open this kind of a directory, you'll see a browser pop-up in which you must type a username and a password. In case you type the right ones, you'll be able to continue surfing around the content without the need to do anything else. When the login details are not accurate, however, you shall see information that you are not allowed to look at the content. If this function is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The option is quite useful 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 prior to it being ready.
