Whenever this function is activated, a pop-up will appear anytime anyone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login details will be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have secured just 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 be positive that no one will be able to access the shielded content. The function could be beneficial in numerous scenarios - if only a few individuals need to be able to see specific files, if you are creating a website and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so on.
