A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the proper login credentials are offered. This could be an entire site or only a single page that is in a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you will see a web browser pop-up where you must type a username as well as a password. If you enter the appropriate ones, you will be able to continue exploring the content with no need to do anything else. In case the login credentials aren't accurate, however, you'll see a message that you are not authorized to view the content. When this function is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The option is incredibly useful if you want to limit the access to some content or if you work on a site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
