A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the proper login details are supplied. This could be a whole Internet site or simply one page that's located within a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you'll see an Internet browser pop-up in which you will have to type in a username as well as a password. In case you type in the correct ones, you will be able to continue exploring the content with no need to do anything more. In case the login details aren't right, however, you will see a message that you are not permitted to view the content. In case this function is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The option is incredibly useful if you want 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.
