When this function is turned on, 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 details will be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured just the domain.com folder. When the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there is no method of getting around this restriction, so you can be sure that nobody shall be able access the secured content. The option can be beneficial in a number of situations - if only certain people must be able to see certain files, if you are creating a website and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so forth.

If you wish to disable the security function for any folder, you can disable it from the same exact section of the CP in which you have enabled it.
