A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the right login details are supplied. This can be a whole website or only one page which is in a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you shall see a web browser pop-up where you will have to enter a username as well as a password. In case you type the right ones, you can continue browsing the content with no need to do anything additional. In case the login details are not accurate, however, you shall see a message that you are not authorized to look at the content. In case this option is activated, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The option is very practical if you wish to restrict 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 is ready.
