When this function is activated, a pop-up will appear each time somebody tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login info will be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured the domain.com folder.

The option may be helpful in various cases - if only some people must be able to see specific files, if you are creating a site and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so forth.
