Whenever this option is active, a pop-up shall appear each and every time someone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login details will be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured the domain.com folder.

The option can be beneficial in numerous situations - if only a few people should be able to see particular files, if you are developing a website and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so on.
