A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login credentials are offered. This may be a whole Internet site or simply a single page that's located in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you shall see a browser pop-up in which you must enter a username as well as a password. If you type the appropriate ones, you can continue browsing the content without having to do anything additional. If the login credentials aren't correct, however, you'll see a note that you aren't authorized to view the content. When this feature is activated, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The option is extremely handy if you wish to prohibit 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.
