A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the proper login credentials are offered. This could be an entire site or simply a single page which is located in a subfolder. If you try to open this kind of a directory, you will see a web browser pop-up where you will need to enter a username as well as a password. If you type the appropriate ones, you can continue surfing around the content with no need to do anything extra. In case the login details are not accurate, however, you'll see a message that you aren't permitted to look at the content. In case this feature is active, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The function is incredibly effective if you wish to restrict the access to some content or if you are developing a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
