A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the proper login credentials are offered. This can be an entire Internet site or only one page that is in a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you shall see a web browser pop-up where you will have to type in a username and also a password. In case you type in the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue surfing around the content without the need to do anything extra. In case the login details are not right, however, you shall see a note that you are not authorized to see the content. If this feature is active, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The option is quite handy if you need to restrict the access to some content or if you are creating an Internet site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
