A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the right login details are offered. This can be an entire Internet site or only a single page that's located within a subfolder. If you try to open this type of a directory, you will see a browser pop-up in which you have to type a username and a password. In case you type the appropriate ones, you can continue exploring the content without the need to do anything extra. In case the login credentials aren't accurate, however, you will see a message that you aren't allowed to view the content. In case this feature is activated, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The feature is incredibly practical if you want to limit the access to some content or if you are creating a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
