If you'd like to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you can activate password protection for a particular folder - either the primary site folder or another one below it. If this option is enabled, a pop-up shall appear each time anyone tries 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 in case you have secured the domain.com folder. If the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there's no way to get around this restriction, so you can be positive that no one will be able to access the protected content. The feature could be helpful in a variety of scenarios - if only a few 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, and so on.
