A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the correct login details are offered. This can be a whole site or simply a single page that is situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you shall see an Internet browser pop-up in which you will need to type a username and also a password. In case you enter the right ones, you can continue browsing the content without the need to do anything more. When the login details are not correct, however, you shall see information that you are not authorized to look at the content. In case this option is active, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The option is incredibly handy if you wish to limit the access to some content or if you work on a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
