When this feature is turned on, a pop-up will appear every time a person tries 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 secured the domain.com folder. In case the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any way to get around this restriction, so you can be positive that no one will be able to access the shielded content. The feature could be useful in a variety of scenarios - if only certain individuals should be able to see specific files, if you are creating a site and you do not want people to see it before it's completed, etc.
