A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the correct login credentials are provided. This could be an entire website or just a single page that is located within a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you'll see an Internet browser pop-up in which you will have to type in a username as well as a password. If you enter the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content with no need to do anything additional. In case the login details are not accurate, however, you shall see information that you aren't authorized to view the content. When this function is activated, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The feature is quite practical if you wish to restrict the access to some content or if you are developing an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
