A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the right login details are provided. This may be an entire Internet site or just a single page that is located within a subfolder. If you attempt to open this kind of a directory, you shall see an Internet browser pop-up where you must enter a username and also a password. In case you input the right ones, you will be able to continue exploring the content without the need to do anything more. If the login credentials aren't correct, however, you shall see information that you aren't allowed to view the content. If this option is active, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The option is quite effective if you'd like to restrict 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.
