If you'd like to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you'll be able to activate password protection for a given folder - either the main website folder or any other one below it. When this option is turned on, a pop-up will appear each and every time anyone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login info will be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured the domain.com folder. If the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there's no method of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that no one shall be able access the shielded content. The function can be helpful in a number of scenarios - if only certain individuals should be able to see specific files, if you are building a site and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, etc.
