A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login details are supplied. This could be a whole Internet site or only one page that's located in a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you will see an Internet browser pop-up where you will have to input a username and also a password. If you input the right ones, you will be able to continue exploring the content without needing to do anything more. In case the login details are not correct, however, you will see information that you are not permitted to view the content. In case this function is activated, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The feature is extremely practical if you want to limit the access to some content or if you are developing an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
