A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login details are supplied. This can be a whole site or just one page that is located within a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you'll see a web browser pop-up in which you will need to type in a username and also a password. In case you enter the appropriate ones, you can continue browsing the content without having to do anything extra.

When this feature is active, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The option is quite useful if you want to prohibit the access to some content or if you are developing a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
