If you'd like to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you could enable password protection for a specific folder - either the main website folder or any other one below it. Whenever this option is active, a pop-up shall appear every time somebody attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login details will be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured just the domain.com folder. When the details 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 nobody will be able to access the secured content. The option could be useful in a number of scenarios - if only some people must be able to see certain files, if you are building a site and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, and so on.
