A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the proper login credentials are supplied. This could be an entire Internet site or simply a single page that's in a subfolder. If you try to open this type of a directory, you'll see an Internet browser pop-up in which you will have to enter a username as well as a password. If you type the right ones, you can continue exploring the content without the need to do anything extra. In case the login details aren't accurate, however, you will see a message that you are not permitted to look at the content. If this option is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The option is very useful if you'd like to restrict the access to some content or if you are creating a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
