A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the correct login details are offered. This may be an entire site or simply a single page that's located in a subfolder. If you try to open this type of a directory, you will see an Internet browser pop-up in which you will have to type in a username and also a password. If you type in the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content without needing to do anything else. If the login details aren't correct, however, you shall see a note that you are not allowed to view the content. In case this feature is activated, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The feature is incredibly effective if you want to limit the access to some content or if you work on a site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
