If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you could enable password protection for a certain folder - either the primary website folder or a different one below it. In case this option is enabled, a pop-up will appear every time a person tries 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 only the domain.com folder. When the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there's 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 may be useful in numerous cases - if only some individuals need to be able to see specific files, if you are building an Internet site and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so on.

Then input the username and the password that you would like and you shall be all set. A tiny padlock icon in the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected.
