A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the proper login credentials are offered. This could be an entire Internet site or only a single page that is located within a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you'll see an Internet browser pop-up where you will have to type a username and also a password. If you input the right ones, you will be able to continue surfing around the content with no need to do anything else. When the login details are not correct, however, you shall see a message that you are not allowed to look at the content. If this feature is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The function is extremely useful if you'd like to restrict the access to some content or if you are creating a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
