A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the right login details are offered. This may be an entire Internet site or just one page that's situated in a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you shall see a web browser pop-up in which you will need to type a username as well as a password. If you input the appropriate ones, you can continue exploring the content without the need to do anything else. If the login details are not accurate, however, you shall see information that you aren't permitted to view the content. When this option is activated, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The option is incredibly practical if you'd like to limit the access to some content or if you work on a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
