A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the proper login details are offered. This can be a whole site or only one page that's located in a subfolder. If you try to open this type of a directory, you'll see a web browser pop-up in which you must type in a username and a password. If you type in the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue surfing around the content with no need to do anything else. If the login details aren't accurate, however, you will see information that you aren't permitted to see the content. When this function is active, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The feature is quite practical if you wish to restrict the access to some content or if you are developing a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

Then input the username and the password that you'd like and you will be set. A small padlock symbol within the File Manager section will tell you that a specific folder is password-protected.
