A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the correct login details are provided. This may be an entire site or only one page that's situated in a subfolder. If you try to open this kind of a directory, you shall see a web browser pop-up in which you must enter a username and a password. If you input the appropriate ones, you can continue exploring the content with no need to do anything more. If the login details are not correct, however, you'll see a message that you aren't allowed to see the content. When this function is active, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The feature is very useful if you want to restrict the access to some content or if you are creating an Internet site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
