A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login credentials are offered. This may be a whole Internet site or simply one page which is in a subfolder. If you try to open this kind of a directory, you will see a browser pop-up in which you must type in a username and also a password. In case you type in the right ones, you can continue surfing around the content without needing to do anything more. When the login credentials aren't right, however, you shall see a message that you are not allowed to look at the content. If this feature is active, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The option is quite practical if you wish to limit the access to some content or if you are creating an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
