When this feature is activated, a pop-up shall appear each and every time somebody attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login details will be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected the domain.com folder. In case the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there's no method of getting around this restriction, so you can rest assured that no one shall be able access the protected content. The option can be useful in a number of situations - if only a number of individuals need to be able to see specific files, if you are developing a site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so on.
