In case this function is active, a pop-up shall appear each and every time someone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login info shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected the domain.com folder. In case the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any way of getting around this restriction, so you can rest assured that no one shall be able access the secured content. The option may be useful in a number of situations - if only a few individuals need to be able to see certain files, if you are developing a website and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so forth.
