If you'd like to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you can enable password protection for a specific folder - either the primary website folder or a different one below it. Whenever this feature is activated, a pop-up will appear each and every time somebody tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login info will be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured only the domain.com folder. When the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any way to get around this restriction, so you can rest assured that nobody will be able to access the protected content. The option may be useful in numerous scenarios - if only a number of people must be able to see particular files, if you are developing a site and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, etc.
