A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the right login credentials are supplied. This may be a whole website or simply one page that is located in a subfolder. If you try to open this kind of a directory, you will see a browser pop-up in which you have to type a username and a password. If you type in the right ones, you will be able to continue browsing the content without the need to do anything additional. In case the login details are not right, however, you will see information that you aren't permitted to look at the content. If this function is activated, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The function is extremely handy if you need to limit the access to some content or if you are creating a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
