A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the correct login credentials are provided. This can be a whole Internet site or just one page which is located within a subfolder. If you try to open this kind of a directory, you shall see an Internet browser pop-up where you will have to type in a username and also a password. If you type the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue exploring the content without having to do anything extra. When the login details are not right, however, you will see a message that you are not permitted to view the content. When this option is activated, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The option is extremely handy if you need to restrict the access to some content or if you are creating a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
