A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login credentials are provided. This may be an entire site or just one page that's in a subfolder. If you try to open this kind of a directory, you will see an Internet browser pop-up where you must type a username as well as a password. In case you type in the correct ones, you can continue surfing around the content without needing to do anything extra. When the login details aren't correct, however, you will see a message that you are not authorized to look at the content. If this feature is activated, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The function is very effective if you want to prohibit the access to some content or if you work on a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
