In case this function is activated, a pop-up will appear anytime anyone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have protected only the domain.com folder. If the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there's no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that nobody shall be able access the shielded content. The option can be beneficial in numerous cases - if only some individuals need to be able to see certain files, if you are developing an Internet site and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, and so on.
