A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the right login credentials are supplied. This can be an entire Internet site or only one page that's in a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you shall see an Internet browser pop-up where you will have to type a username as well as a password. If you type in the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content without needing to do anything additional. If the login details aren't right, however, you'll see a message that you aren't permitted to view the content. In case this feature is active, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The function is quite effective if you want to restrict the access to some content or if you work on a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
