In case this feature is turned on, a pop-up shall 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 will be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have protected the domain.com folder. If the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there is no way to get around this restriction, so you can be certain that no one shall be able access the secured content. The feature can be beneficial in various scenarios - if only some individuals must be able to see specific files, if you are building a website and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so forth.
