Whenever this feature is turned on, a pop-up shall appear anytime somebody tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login info will be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have protected only the domain.com folder.

The function may be useful in a number of scenarios - if only a number of people must be able to see specific files, if you are building a website and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so on.
