A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the proper login credentials are provided. This could be a whole website or simply one page which is in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you'll see a web browser pop-up where you have to type in a username as well as a password. If you type in the right ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content without the need to do anything additional. In case the login credentials are not correct, however, you'll see a note that you aren't permitted to see the content. In case this option is active, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The function is extremely handy if you wish to prohibit 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.
