A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the correct login details are offered. This may be an entire website or just a single page which is located within a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you shall see a web browser pop-up where you have to type a username as well as a password. If you type the appropriate ones, you can continue browsing the content with no need to do anything additional. When the login credentials are not accurate, however, you'll see information that you are not authorized to see the content. In case this function is active, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The feature is incredibly practical if you'd like to prohibit the access to some content or if you work on an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
