If you'd like to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you can enable password protection for a certain folder - either the main Internet site folder or another one below it. If this feature is turned on, a pop-up will appear each time somebody tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login info shall be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have secured just the domain.com folder. In case the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any way to get around this restriction, so you can be positive that no one shall be able access the shielded content. The option may be helpful in a variety of situations - if only certain individuals should be able to see specific files, if you work on a site and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, etc.

You will be able to see the secured folders at a glance either in the exact same section of the CP or in the File Manager section where you shall identify them by their small padlock icons.
