If you would like keep some content concealed from the public eye, you can enable password protection for a specific folder - either the main site folder or a different one below it. If this option is activated, a pop-up will appear anytime someone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login information shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured the domain.com folder. When the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there isn't any method of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that no one will be able to access the secured content. The feature can be useful in numerous cases - if only a few people need to be able to see specific files, if you are building a site and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, and so forth.
