A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the correct login credentials are supplied. This may be a whole website or only a single page that is located within a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you'll see a browser pop-up in which you have to input a username and also a password. If you type the right ones, you'll be able to continue surfing around the content without needing to do anything more. In case the login credentials are not accurate, however, you will see a note that you are not authorized to view the content. In case this feature is active, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The function is quite effective if you want to restrict the access to some content or if you work on a site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
