A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the correct login details are supplied. This could be an entire Internet site or just one page that is in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you'll see a browser pop-up where you will need to enter a username and also a password. If you enter the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue surfing around the content without the need to do anything extra. If the login credentials are not accurate, however, you will see a message that you aren't permitted to view the content. In case this feature is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The option is incredibly practical if you wish to restrict the access to some content or if you are creating a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
