A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the right login credentials are offered. This could be an entire site or only a single page which is located in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you shall see an Internet browser pop-up where you will have to type a username and also a password. In case you type in the right ones, you can continue browsing the content with no need to do anything more. If the login credentials are not correct, however, you'll see information that you are not permitted to view the content. If this feature is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The feature is extremely effective if you need to prohibit the access to some content or if you work on an Internet site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
