A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the correct login details are provided. This can be an entire site or simply one page that is located in a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you will see an Internet browser pop-up where you will need to input a username and a password. If you type in the appropriate ones, you will be able to continue exploring the content without the need to do anything more. In case the login credentials aren't right, however, you shall see a note that you are not authorized to see the content. When this option is activated, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The option is extremely practical if you wish to prohibit the access to some content or if you work on a site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

The function will be activated at once, so in case you attempt to open the folder/website, you shall be prompted to type in the login info.
