A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the correct login details are offered. This may be an entire Internet site or just one page which is located within a subfolder. If you try to open this kind of a directory, you will see an Internet browser pop-up where you must type a username and a password. If you enter the correct ones, you can continue browsing the content without the need to do anything additional. In case the login details aren't accurate, however, you'll see a note that you aren't permitted to view the content. In case this function is active, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The feature is incredibly practical if you need to limit the access to some content or if you are creating an Internet site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
