A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the correct login details are offered. This could be a whole site or only a single page which is situated in a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you'll see a browser pop-up where you must type in a username and a password. If you input the correct ones, you can continue browsing the content with no need to do anything additional. When the login credentials are not accurate, however, you shall see a note that you aren't authorized to see the content. If this function is activated, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The option is incredibly handy 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 before it is ready.
