A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the right login credentials are supplied. This may be an entire site or just a single page which is in a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you'll see a browser pop-up where you will have to type in a username and a password. In case you enter the correct ones, you can continue surfing around the content without needing to do anything extra. In case the login details are not accurate, however, you will see a message that you are not allowed to view the content. In case this feature is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The option is extremely practical if you wish to prohibit the access to some content or if you are creating a site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
