A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the right login credentials are provided. This may be an entire site or simply a single page that's located within a subfolder. If you try to open this kind of a directory, you'll see a web browser pop-up in which you must type in a username and also a password. In case you type the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue surfing around the content with no need to do anything extra. When the login details aren't right, however, you will see a note that you are not authorized to look at the content. When this feature is activated, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The function is quite useful if you'd like to limit the access to some content or if you are creating a site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
