If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you are able to enable password protection for a given folder - either the primary site folder or any other one below it. If this option is enabled, a pop-up will appear anytime somebody attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login details shall be required 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's no method of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that no one will be able to access the protected content. The function may be useful in a variety of cases - if only a few people should be able to see particular files, if you work on a site and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, etc.
