A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the right login credentials are offered. This can be a whole website or only one page that's located in a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you'll see a web browser pop-up in which you will have to input a username and also a password. If you type the correct ones, you'll be able to continue surfing around the content with no need to do anything else. When the login details are not correct, however, you will see a note that you aren't authorized to see the content. When this feature is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The function is extremely practical if you wish to prohibit 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.

The feature shall be turned on instantly, so in case you attempt to open the folder/website, you'll be prompted to enter the login credentials. You can set up or remove a number of usernames for the exact same folder, if necessary. When you navigate to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be marked with a tiny padlock icon.
