A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the proper login details are offered. This could be an entire website or only a single page that is in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you shall see an Internet browser pop-up in which you will need to input a username and also a password. In case you enter the right ones, you can continue browsing the content without needing to do anything more. When the login credentials are not accurate, however, you will see a message that you are not authorized to look at the content. In case this option is activated, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The option is extremely useful if you need to restrict the access to some content or if you work on an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
