A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the right login details are supplied. This could be an entire website or only one page that is located within a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you will see an Internet browser pop-up in which you must input a username and a password. In case you enter the right ones, you will be able to continue browsing the content without the need to do anything more. When the login details are not accurate, however, you will see information that you aren't authorized to see the content. When this function is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The function is extremely useful if you want to restrict the access to some content or if you are developing a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
