The guide details how to proceed to password protect a folder on your web hosting account. The guide requires you to first log into cPanel.
Click on the icon for "Directory privacy" as shown in the screenshot below:
Choose which folder you want to protect with a password. We choose the folder "pictures".
Under "Security settings":
The actual folder is now protected. We must create at least one user with a password to get access to the folder. Click on the link "Go back".
Under "Create user":
We have created a user with a password which has access to the protected folder we chose in step 2. Click "Go back".
Under "Autorized users" you can see which users have access to the actual folder at any time. To delete users who shouldn’t have access anymore, you click on the user so it’s marked with a blue background. Then click on the "Delete user" button.
We have now protected a folder and created a user with a password that has access to the protected folder. You can create several users if you want by going back to step 6.
