If you would like keep some content concealed from the public eye, you can enable password protection for a certain folder - either the main Internet site folder or another one below it. In case this option is activated, a pop-up shall appear each time someone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured only the domain.com folder. When the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there isn't any way to get around this restriction, so you can rest assured that nobody will be able to access the protected content. The feature could be beneficial in various cases - if only a number of individuals need to be able to see specific files, if you are developing a website and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, etc.
