A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the correct login credentials are provided. This can be an entire site or simply a single page that's located within a subfolder. If you try to open this type of a directory, you'll see an Internet browser pop-up in which you will have to input a username and a password. If you enter the appropriate ones, you can continue surfing around the content with no need to do anything more. In case the login details are not right, however, you'll see information that you are not permitted to see the content. When this feature is active, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The function is incredibly handy if you'd like to limit the access to some content or if you work on an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
