A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the correct login details are supplied. This can be an entire Internet site or only one page that's located within a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you shall see an Internet browser pop-up where you will have to type a username as well as a password. In case you input the appropriate ones, you can continue surfing around the content without the need to do anything extra. When the login credentials are not accurate, however, you shall see information that you aren't authorized to look at the content. In case this option is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The option is quite practical if you wish to restrict the access to some content or if you are developing a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
