A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the correct login credentials are offered. This could be a whole Internet site or only a single page that's in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you will see a web browser pop-up where you have to type a username as well as a password. If you input the correct ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content without having to do anything more. In case the login details are not accurate, however, you will see a message that you are not allowed to view the content. If this feature is active, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The option is very handy if you'd like to prohibit the access to some content or if you are developing an Internet site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
