A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the proper login details are supplied. This could be an entire Internet site or just a single page that is in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this kind of a directory, you will see a browser pop-up where you have to input a username and also a password. If you enter the right ones, you can continue surfing around the content with no need to do anything else. When the login details are not correct, however, you will see a note that you are not permitted to see the content. When this option is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The feature is incredibly handy if you'd like to restrict the access to some content or if you are creating a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
