A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the right login details are provided. This can be an entire Internet site or simply a single page that's situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you shall see an Internet browser pop-up where you have to type in a username and also a password. In case you enter the right ones, you will be able to continue surfing around the content with no need to do anything more. If the login details are not right, however, you will see a message that you are not allowed to see the content. When this feature is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The feature is extremely handy if you wish to restrict the access to some content or if you work on a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
