A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the right login details are offered. This can be an entire site or only a single page which is located within a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you'll see a web browser pop-up in which you must type a username as well as a password. If you type the correct ones, you can continue exploring the content without needing to do anything additional. If the login credentials are not right, however, you shall see a note that you are not permitted to view the content. In case this function is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The function is very practical if you want 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 prior to it being ready.

Then input the username and the password that you want and you'll be all set. A little padlock icon in the File Manager section will tell you that a specific folder is password-protected.
