A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the right login credentials are provided. This can be a whole Internet site or only a single page that is situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you will see an Internet browser pop-up where you will need to type a username and a password. If you type in the correct ones, you can continue browsing the content without needing to do anything additional. When the login details are not correct, however, you shall see a message that you aren't allowed to see the content. When this option is activated, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The option is quite effective if you wish to prohibit 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.
