A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the right login details are offered. This could be an entire site or just a single page that is located within a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you shall see an Internet browser pop-up where you will have to input a username and also a password. If you input the right ones, you can continue surfing around the content without needing to do anything else. If the login details are not correct, however, you will see a note that you are not authorized to view the content. If 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 wish to limit the access to some content or if you work on a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
