A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the right login details are supplied. This may be an entire website or only a single page that's located within a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you'll see an Internet browser pop-up in which you must type in a username as well as a password. In case you type the correct ones, you will be able to continue surfing around the content without having to do anything else. If the login credentials aren't right, however, you shall see a note that you are not allowed to see the content. If this feature is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The option is extremely effective if you wish to limit 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's ready.
