A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the proper login details are supplied. This could be an entire website or only one page which is in a subfolder. If you try to open this kind of a directory, you shall see a browser pop-up in which you must input a username and a password. If you type the appropriate ones, you can continue surfing around the content without the need to do anything additional. In case the login details are not right, however, you'll see information that you aren't authorized to look at the content. When this feature is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The option is incredibly useful if you need to restrict the access to some content or if you work on a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
