A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the correct login credentials are supplied. This may be an entire website or simply a single page which is located in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you shall see a web browser pop-up where you must type in a username and also a password. In case you type in the right ones, you will be able to continue exploring the content with no need to do anything more. In case the login credentials are not right, however, you will see a note that you aren't permitted to look at the content. When this feature is active, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The function is quite handy if you want to restrict the access to some content or if you work on a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
