If you'd like to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you can activate password protection for a specific folder - either the primary site folder or a different one below it. When this option is active, a pop-up will appear anytime somebody attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login info will be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured only the domain.com folder. If 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 positive that no one will be able to access the shielded content. The feature can be beneficial in a variety of scenarios - if only some individuals need to be able to see specific files, if you work on a site and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so on.
