A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the correct login details are provided. This could be an entire Internet site or simply a single page that is located in a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you'll see an Internet browser pop-up in which you will have to type in a username and a password. If you type in the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue surfing around the content with no need to do anything more. In case the login credentials aren't accurate, however, you shall see a message that you aren't permitted to view the content. When this function is active, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The function is very effective if you wish to prohibit the access to some content or if you are developing an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
