If you'd like to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you are able to activate password protection for a given folder - either the primary site folder or any other one below it. When this option is activated, a pop-up shall appear each and every time a person tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured only the domain.com folder. If the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there's no method of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that no one will be able to access the secured content. The function can be beneficial in various situations - if only some people must be able to see specific files, if you are developing a site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so forth.
