A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the right login details are provided. This can be a whole Internet site or simply a single page which is located in a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you shall see an Internet browser pop-up where you will have to type in a username and also a password. If you input the correct ones, you will be able to continue browsing the content with no need to do anything more. If the login credentials aren't correct, however, you will see information that you aren't allowed to view 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 extremely effective if you wish to limit the access to some content or if you are creating an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
