If you'd like to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you are able to activate password protection for a given folder - either the main website folder or another one below it. Whenever this function is turned on, a pop-up will appear each and every time a person attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured the domain.com folder. In case the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there isn't any way to get around this restriction, so you can be certain that no one will be able to access the protected content. The feature can be beneficial in numerous situations - if only certain people should be able to see certain files, if you work on a website and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so forth.
