In case this feature is active, a pop-up will appear anytime anyone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login details shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have secured only the domain.com folder. If the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there's no method of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that nobody shall be able access the secured content. The feature may be helpful in various situations - if only some individuals should be able to see particular files, if you are creating a site and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, and so on.
