In case this feature is enabled, a pop-up will appear every time somebody attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login info shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have secured just the domain.com folder. When the credentials are not 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 option may be useful in a variety of situations - if only a few individuals need to be able to see certain files, if you are developing a website and you do not want people to see it before it's completed, and so on.
