A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the proper login details are supplied. This may be a whole Internet site or just one page that is located in a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you shall see a web browser pop-up in which you have to enter a username as well as a password. In case you type the appropriate ones, you can continue surfing around the content without having to do anything additional. If the login details aren't accurate, however, you shall see a note that you are not authorized to look at the content. When this feature is active, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The option is very effective if you wish to limit 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.

The feature shall be activated at once, so in case you try to open the folder/website, you will be prompted to input the login info. You may create or remove multiple usernames for the exact same folder, when necessary. When you navigate to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be indicated by a small padlock icon.
