A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login details are supplied. This could be an entire website or simply one page that is located within a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you'll see a browser pop-up in which you have to input a username as well as a password. If you type the appropriate ones, you can continue browsing the content without having to do anything else. If the login credentials are not correct, however, you will see information that you aren't allowed to look at the content. In case this function is active, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The option is incredibly useful if you want to restrict the access to some content or if you are creating a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
