A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the correct login credentials are offered. This can be a whole Internet site or simply a single page that's in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this kind of a directory, you will see a browser pop-up where you will need to type in a username and a password. If you type the correct ones, you will be able to continue surfing around the content without needing to do anything extra. If the login credentials are not correct, however, you will see a message that you aren't allowed to see the content. In case this function is activated, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The function is quite practical if you want to restrict the access to some content or if you are developing a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
