A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the right login credentials are offered. This could be an entire Internet site or simply a single page which is in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you'll see an Internet browser pop-up where you have to input a username as well as a password. In case you input the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content without having to do anything additional. When the login credentials aren't accurate, however, you shall see a note that you aren't permitted to see the content. If this option is active, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The function is quite practical if you wish 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 prior to it being ready.
