A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the right login credentials are supplied. This can be an entire website or only one page that's situated in a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you shall see a web browser pop-up where you will need to enter a username as well as a password. If you enter the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content without the need to do anything extra. When the login details are not accurate, however, you will see a note that you are not permitted to view the content. In case this function is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The option is quite effective if you need to limit the access to some content or if you are creating an Internet site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
