A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the correct login credentials are offered. This can be a whole website or just one page that is located within a subfolder. If you try to open this type of a directory, you'll see a browser pop-up where you must type a username and also a password. In case you type the right ones, you will be able to continue exploring the content with no need to do anything additional.

The function is incredibly useful if you'd like to restrict the access to some content or if you are creating an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
