A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login credentials are supplied. This can be a whole website or only one page that is in a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you shall see a browser pop-up where you must enter a username as well as a password. In case you type the appropriate ones, you will be able to continue exploring the content without the need to do anything else. If the login credentials aren't right, however, you shall see a note that you are not authorized to see the content. In case this option is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The option is very handy if you wish to prohibit the access to some content or if you work on a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
