In case this function is activated, a pop-up shall appear each and every time somebody tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login info will be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected only the domain.com folder. When the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there is no way to get around this restriction, so you can rest assured that no one shall be able access the protected content. The option may be beneficial in various scenarios - if only certain people need to be able to see specific files, if you are building a website and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, and so forth.
