If you wish to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you'll be able to activate password protection for a particular folder - either the main website folder or a different one below it. When this function is active, a pop-up shall appear each and every time somebody attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have secured only the domain.com folder. If the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any way to get around this restriction, so you can be positive that no one will be able to access the secured content. The function could be useful in various cases - if only some people must be able to see particular files, if you are developing a site and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, etc.
