A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the correct login details are offered. This can be an entire site or only one page that is in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you'll see an Internet browser pop-up in which you have to input a username and a password. In case you input the correct ones, you will be able to continue surfing around the content without needing to do anything more. In case the login credentials are not accurate, however, you will see a note that you aren't authorized to see the content. When this option is activated, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The option is very useful if you want to prohibit the access to some content or if you work on a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
