A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the correct login details are provided. This may be an entire Internet site or simply one page that is in a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you shall see an Internet browser pop-up in which you must input a username and a password. If you type the correct ones, you will be able to continue browsing the content with no need to do anything else. If the login credentials aren't right, however, you will see a note that you are not allowed to see the content. When this feature is active, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The option is quite effective if you'd like to limit 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.
