If you wish to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you are able to activate password protection for a given folder - either the primary site folder or another one below it. In case this option is turned on, a pop-up will appear each 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 necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured just the domain.com folder. In case the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there isn't any way to get around this restriction, so you can be positive that nobody shall be able access the secured content. The function could be helpful in a variety of scenarios - if only a number of individuals must be able to see particular files, if you are building a website and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, etc.
