If you wish to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you can activate password protection for a particular folder - either the main website folder or a different one below it. In case this option is activated, a pop-up will appear anytime a person tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login details shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured just the domain.com folder. When the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there's no way to get around this restriction, so you can be sure that nobody will be able to access the protected content. The function could be useful in various scenarios - if only a number of individuals need to be able to see certain files, if you work on a website and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so forth.
