A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the correct login details are offered. This could be a whole website or just a single page which is located within a subfolder. If you attempt to open this kind of a directory, you'll see a browser pop-up where you must type in a username as well as a password. In case you enter the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue surfing around the content without having to do anything additional. If the login credentials aren't correct, however, you shall see information that you aren't allowed to view the content. When this option is active, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The feature is extremely practical if you wish to restrict the access to some content or if you work on a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
