If this option is turned on, a pop-up shall appear every time anyone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login details shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have protected just the domain.com folder. When the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there's no method of getting around this restriction, so you can rest assured that no one will be able to access the secured content. The function may be beneficial in numerous cases - if only certain individuals must be able to see specific files, if you are creating an Internet site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so forth.
