Whenever this feature is activated, a pop-up shall appear anytime someone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login details shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured the domain.com folder. When the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there is no way to get around this restriction, so you can rest assured that no one shall be able access the protected content. The function may be useful in a number of scenarios - if only a few people should be able to see certain files, if you are building an Internet site and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so on.
