A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the correct login credentials are provided. This may be a whole Internet site or only a single page that is located in a subfolder. If you try to open this type of a directory, you will see an Internet browser pop-up where you will need to type a username and a password. If you type the appropriate ones, you can continue exploring the content without the need to do anything additional. When the login credentials aren't accurate, however, you'll see information that you aren't permitted to see the content. If this option is activated, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The function is incredibly effective if you'd like to restrict the access to some content or if you are creating a site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
