A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the correct login credentials are provided. This could be a whole website or just one page that is located within a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you will see an Internet browser pop-up where you must type in a username and a password. If you type the right ones, you can continue surfing around the content without needing to do anything additional. When the login credentials are not accurate, however, you'll see a message that you aren't permitted to view the content. If this function is active, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The function is very effective if you need to prohibit the access to some content or if you are developing a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.

You'll also be able to give different usernames for the same folder to a number of individuals, so you will not have to share the same login details with everyone. Any password-protected folder will have a little padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you shall be able to recognize this type of folders effortlessly.
