Whenever this function is active, a pop-up will appear each and every time someone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login info will be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have protected only the domain.com folder. If the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there isn't any way of getting around this restriction, so you can rest assured that nobody shall be able access the secured content. The feature may be useful in various situations - if only certain individuals should be able to see particular files, if you are developing an Internet site and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, and so on.
