A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the proper login credentials are offered. This could be an entire Internet site or simply one page which is situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you'll see an Internet browser pop-up where you have to type in a username and also a password. If you type the correct ones, you can continue surfing around the content without having to do anything else. In case the login details are not correct, however, you will see a message that you aren't permitted to look at the content. When this feature is activated, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The option is very practical if you'd like to restrict the access to some content or if you work on a site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
