A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the right login credentials are provided. This can be a whole site or just one page that's in a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you shall see an Internet browser pop-up where you will have to type in a username as well as a password. If you type the appropriate ones, you will be able to continue exploring the content with no need to do anything additional. When the login credentials are not correct, however, you will see a note that you are not allowed to look at the content. In case this option is activated, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The feature is quite handy if you want to limit the access to some content or if you are creating a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
