A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the correct login details are provided. This may be an entire site or just one page which is situated in a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you will see a web browser pop-up where you must type a username as well as a password. In case you type the correct ones, you can continue surfing around the content without needing to do anything extra. When the login details aren't accurate, however, you'll see a message that you are not authorized to look at the content. In case this feature is activated, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The option is extremely practical if you need to limit the access to some content or if you work on an Internet site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.

Then enter the username and the password that you want and you will be ready. A little padlock icon in the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the same way you'll be able to include several usernames and passwords for the same folder if you would like several people to have their own login credentials.
