A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the correct login details are provided. This can be a whole website or just one page that is located within a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you shall see an Internet browser pop-up where you will have to type in a username as well as a password. In case you type in the correct ones, you will be able to continue browsing the content without needing to do anything extra. When the login details are not right, however, you will see a note that you are not authorized to view the content. In case this option is active, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The option is incredibly practical if you want to limit the access to some content or if you are creating an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
