In case this feature is activated, a pop-up will appear each and every time someone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login details shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured just the domain.com folder. If the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there's no method of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that nobody will be able to access the protected content. The function could be useful in various situations - if only a few people should be able to see particular files, if you are building an Internet site and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, and so forth.
