A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the right login details are provided. This can be a whole site or simply one page that is located in a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you will see a browser pop-up in which you will need to input a username and also a password. In case you input the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue surfing around the content without the need to do anything else. In case the login credentials aren't accurate, however, you shall see a note that you are not allowed to look at the content. When this function is activated, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The function is very practical if you need 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 before it is ready.
