A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login details are offered. This can be a whole Internet site or simply a single page which is located in a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you will see a browser pop-up where you will need to type in a username and also a password. If you input the correct ones, you'll be able to continue surfing around the content without needing to do anything additional. In case the login details aren't correct, however, you shall see a message that you are not allowed to look at the content. When this option is activated, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The option is quite practical if you want to limit the access to some content or if you are developing a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.

The protection shall take effect immediately, so if you attempt to open the password-protected URL in your web browser, you will need to type in the newly created login credentials before you proceed. You will 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 credentials with everybody. Each 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 in no time.
