When this function is enabled, a pop-up will appear every time a person attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login details shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have protected just the domain.com folder. In case the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any way of getting around this restriction, so you can be sure that no one will be able to access the shielded content. The option could be beneficial in a variety of situations - if only some people need to be able to see specific files, if you are building a site and you do not want people to see it before it's completed, and so on.
