A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the right login details are supplied. This may be a whole site or simply one page that is situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you shall see an Internet browser pop-up in which you have to input a username as well as a password. If you type the appropriate ones, you can continue surfing around the content without needing to do anything more. If the login credentials are not right, however, you will see a message that you are not authorized to see the content. When this function is activated, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The feature is very useful if you'd like to limit the access to some content or if you are developing a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
