A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the correct login details are supplied. This may be an entire Internet site or just a single page which is located in a subfolder. If you try to open this type of a directory, you will see a web browser pop-up in which you must input a username and also a password. If you input the right ones, you can continue surfing around the content with no need to do anything else. When the login details aren't accurate, however, you'll see a note that you aren't authorized to look at 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 very handy if you'd like to limit the access to some content or if you are creating a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
