If you would like keep some content hidden from the public eye, you'll be able to activate password protection for a certain folder - either the primary site folder or another one below it. Whenever this function is active, a pop-up shall appear anytime somebody attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login details will be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured the domain.com folder. If the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there is no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be sure that nobody will be able to access the secured content. The feature can be beneficial in a variety of cases - if only a few people must be able to see specific files, if you work on a site and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so forth.
