If you'd like to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you are able to activate password protection for a certain folder - either the main site folder or another one below it. When this option is turned on, a pop-up will appear every time somebody tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login details shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have secured the domain.com folder. When the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there isn't any method of getting around this restriction, so you can be sure that no one shall be able access the protected content. The feature may be helpful in a number of cases - if only a few individuals should be able to see certain files, if you are building a website and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so forth.
