In case this option is turned on, a pop-up will appear each and every time someone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have secured just the domain.com folder. When the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there's no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that nobody will be able to access the protected content. The feature may be beneficial in numerous cases - if only a few people must be able to see certain files, if you are developing an Internet site and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, etc.
