A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the correct login details are supplied. This can be an entire website or just one page that is situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you shall see a browser pop-up in which you have to type in a username as well as a password. In case you type the correct ones, you'll be able to continue surfing around the content without needing to do anything additional. In case the login credentials are not correct, however, you shall see information that you are not authorized to see the content. In case this feature is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The option is incredibly useful if you wish to restrict the access to some content or if you are developing a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
