A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login details are offered. This can be a whole site or only one page that is in a subfolder. If you try to open this kind of a directory, you'll see a browser pop-up in which you will need to input a username as well as a password. In case you type the correct ones, you can continue surfing around the content without the need to do anything else. If the login details aren't correct, however, you shall see a note that you aren't permitted to look at the content. When this feature is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The feature is quite effective if you want to limit the access to some content or if you work on a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
