A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login details are provided. This may be a whole website or only one page that's located within a subfolder. If you attempt to open this kind of a directory, you shall see a browser pop-up where you must enter a username and also a password. If you type the correct ones, you'll be able to continue surfing around the content with no need to do anything additional. In case the login credentials are not correct, however, you'll see a note that you are not permitted to look at the content. When this feature is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The function is incredibly practical if you wish to limit the access to some content or if you work on a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
