A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the right login details are offered. This could be an entire Internet site or just one page that is in a subfolder. If you try to open this type of a directory, you'll see a web browser pop-up in which you will need to enter a username and also a password. If you enter the appropriate ones, you will be able to continue browsing the content without needing to do anything else. If the login credentials are not accurate, however, you will see information that you aren't authorized to view the content. In case this option is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The option is quite practical if you wish to restrict the access to some content or if you work on a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
