A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login details are supplied. This may be an entire Internet site or simply a single page that is in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this kind of a directory, you will see a web browser pop-up where you have to input a username and also a password. If you input the correct ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content without needing to do anything else. If the login details aren't right, however, you will see a message that you aren't permitted to view the content. When this feature is active, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The option is very effective if you want to prohibit the access to some content or if you work on a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
