In case this function is active, a pop-up shall appear anytime somebody tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured only the domain.com folder.

The option may be beneficial in various situations - if only some individuals must be able to see specific files, if you work on an Internet site and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, and so on.
