In case this feature is enabled, a pop-up will appear each time anyone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login info will be necessary 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 shall appear and there's no way of getting around this restriction, so you can rest assured that no one shall be able access the protected content. The feature could be helpful in a variety of situations - if only some individuals should be able to see certain files, if you are building a website and you do not want people to see it before it's completed, and so forth.

The function will be activated at once, so in case you attempt to open the folder/website, you shall be prompted to enter the login credentials.
