When this feature is activated, a pop-up shall appear each and every time someone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login info shall be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured just the domain.com folder. If the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any way of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that no one will be able to access the protected content. The function can be helpful in numerous scenarios - if only some people must be able to see specific files, if you are developing an Internet site and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so on.
