You can set a password to protect certain directories of your account. When you enable this feature, a user that tries to open a protected folder will be prompted to enter a username and password before they can access your content.

Step 1 − Open Directory Privacy Configuration by clicking Directory Privacy in the Files Section.

Step 2 − Navigate within your directories to find the directory you want to protect. Use the icon on the left-hand side to open a directory.

Step 3 − Select the directory you want to protect by clicking on the name of the folder.

Step 4 − Select Password protect for this directory checkbox and enter a Label which you wish to display in the frontend, click Save to protect the directory.

Step 5 − To give access to users, you will need to create users. Enter username and password to create a new user, who will have access to this directory from the frontend.

Step 6 − Click Save to give access to this user. You can also create more than one user here.

If you now try to access your password-protected directory, you will get a prompt.
