A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the correct login details are offered. This can be an entire site or simply a single page which is in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you'll see a browser pop-up where you must input a username as well as a password. In case you enter the right ones, you'll be able to continue exploring the content without having to do anything additional. When the login credentials are not accurate, however, you will see information that you aren't authorized to look at the content. In case this feature is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The function is incredibly useful if you'd like to restrict the access to some content or if you work on a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
