In case this option is turned on, a pop-up will appear every time someone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login details will be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have protected the domain.com folder. When the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there is no way of getting around this restriction, so you can rest assured that no one shall be able access the protected content. The function could be helpful in numerous situations - if only a few individuals need to be able to see particular files, if you are creating a website and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, etc.
