When this feature is turned on, a pop-up shall appear anytime somebody tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login details shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected the domain.com folder. In case the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there is no method of getting around this restriction, so you can be sure that nobody will be able to access the secured content. The function could be useful in numerous scenarios - if only a number of individuals should be able to see particular files, if you are developing an Internet site and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, etc.
