If this option is activated, a pop-up shall appear each and every time somebody attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login info shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have protected only the domain.com folder.

The feature may be useful in a number of scenarios - if only some people should be able to see particular files, if you are creating a website and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, and so on.
