A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the right login credentials are offered. This may be an entire Internet site or only one page which is located within a subfolder. If you try to open this type of a directory, you'll see an Internet browser pop-up in which you have to type a username and a password. If you enter the correct ones, you'll be able to continue exploring the content without the need to do anything extra. When the login credentials aren't correct, however, you shall see a note that you aren't authorized to look at the content. If this feature is activated, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The feature is incredibly effective if you wish to restrict the access to some content or if you are creating a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

All secured folders shall appear with a padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you will always know where this function is activated. If you want to deactivate the security feature for any folder, you can deactivate it from the very same section of the CP where you have enabled it.
