When this option is activated, a pop-up will appear anytime someone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login info will be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured just the domain.com folder.

The function may be beneficial in a variety of scenarios - if only some individuals should be able to see specific files, if you work on an Internet site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, etc.
