If you wish to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you are able to enable password protection for a specific folder - either the main site folder or a different one below it. In case this option is activated, a pop-up shall appear each and every time a person attempts 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 when you have secured only the domain.com folder. In case the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there is no method of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that no one shall be able access the shielded content. The function could be helpful in a number of situations - if only some individuals should be able to see certain files, if you are developing an Internet site and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, etc.
