A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the right login details are supplied. This may be an entire website or simply one page which is located within a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you will see a browser pop-up in which you will have to type in a username and also a password. If you type the appropriate ones, you can continue exploring the content with no need to do anything else. If the login details aren't right, however, you will see a message that you are not authorized to look at the content. If this feature is activated, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The feature is extremely practical if you wish to restrict 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.
