A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the right login credentials are provided. This could be an entire site or just a single page that is located in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you shall see a browser pop-up where you must input a username and also a password. If you type in the correct ones, you can continue exploring the content without needing to do anything extra. When the login details are not right, however, you shall see a note that you are not authorized to view the content. In case this option is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The function is extremely useful if you need to prohibit the access to some content or if you are developing a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
