A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the proper login details are supplied. This may be a whole Internet site or only one page that is in a subfolder. If you try to open this type of a directory, you shall see a browser pop-up where you will have to type a username and also a password. If you input the correct ones, you can continue surfing around the content with no need to do anything extra. In case the login credentials are not correct, however, you shall see a message that you are not permitted to view the content. If this function is active, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The option is quite practical if you'd like to prohibit the access to some content or if you are creating an Internet site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
