A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the correct login details are provided. This can be an entire site or simply a single page that is located within a subfolder. If you try to open this type of a directory, you shall see an Internet browser pop-up in which you have to type a username and also a password. In case you type in the right ones, you can continue surfing around the content without the need to do anything more. In case the login credentials aren't correct, however, you will see a message that you are not permitted to view the content. When this function is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The function is extremely useful if you want to prohibit the access to some content or if you are developing a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
