A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the proper login details are offered. This could be an entire site or only one page that's located within a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you will see a browser pop-up in which you will have to type a username as well as a password. In case you type the correct ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content without needing to do anything additional. In case the login credentials aren't accurate, however, you will see a note that you aren't permitted to look at the content. In case this option is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The function is very practical if you want to limit the access to some content or if you are developing a site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
