A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login credentials are supplied. This could be an entire site or only a single page that's situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this kind of a directory, you will see an Internet browser pop-up where you will have to enter a username and also a password. If you type the right ones, you can continue browsing the content with no need to do anything extra. If the login details are not correct, however, you will see information that you aren't permitted to view the content. When this function is active, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The function is quite useful if you'd like to limit the access to some content or if you are developing an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
