A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the proper login details are offered. This could be an entire website or simply one page that is situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you will see an Internet browser pop-up where you have to type in a username as well as a password. If you enter the right ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content with no need to do anything extra. If the login credentials are not right, however, you shall see information that you aren't authorized to view the content. In case this function is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The feature is quite effective if you'd like to limit the access to some content or if you work on an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
