In case this function is activated, a pop-up shall appear each time anyone tries 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 if you have secured just the domain.com folder. When 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 shall be able access the secured content. The option could be helpful in numerous cases - if only a few individuals must be able to see particular files, if you are creating an Internet site and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, and so forth.
