Whenever this feature is active, a pop-up shall appear anytime a person tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured just the domain.com folder.

The function can be beneficial in a variety of cases - if only some people should be able to see certain files, if you are creating a website and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, and so forth.
