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

The option could be beneficial in a variety of scenarios - if only a number of individuals should be able to see certain files, if you are creating a site and you do not want people to see it before it's completed, etc.
