A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the right login credentials are provided. This could be an entire Internet site or only one page that's located in a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you shall see a web browser pop-up where you must input a username as well as a password. If you input the right ones, you'll be able to continue surfing around the content without the need to do anything additional. If the login details aren't right, however, you shall see information that you are not allowed to look at the content. When this function is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The feature is quite effective if you wish to prohibit the access to some content or if you are developing a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
