A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the correct login credentials are provided. This can be a whole site or only one page that is located in a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you'll see a web browser pop-up in which you will have to type in a username and also a password. In case you enter the correct ones, you'll be able to continue surfing around the content without having to do anything additional. If the login details are not correct, however, you'll see a message that you aren't authorized to look at the content. When this feature is active, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The feature is incredibly practical if you need to limit the access to some content or if you are developing a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
