A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the right login details are offered. This could be a whole site or simply a single page which is in a subfolder. If you try to open this type of a directory, you shall see a web browser pop-up in which you will need to type a username and also a password. In case you enter the right ones, you'll be able to continue surfing around the content without having to do anything extra. If the login credentials are not accurate, however, you'll see a note that you are not authorized to view the content. When this function is active, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The function is quite practical if you need to restrict the access to some content or if you work on an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
