A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the correct login credentials are offered. This can be a whole website or just one page which is located within a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you shall see a browser pop-up in which you will need to input a username and also a password. If you type in the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue surfing around the content without the need to do anything extra. When the login details are not accurate, however, you will see a note that you aren't allowed to view the content. If this feature is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The feature is incredibly handy if you wish to limit the access to some content or if you work on a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
