If you would like keep some content concealed from the public eye, you can enable password protection for a given folder - either the main site folder or any other one below it. In case this option is turned on, a pop-up shall appear each time someone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have secured only the domain.com folder. When the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall 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 helpful in a number of cases - if only certain individuals should be able to see particular files, if you work on a site and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, etc.
