There are a few steps you need to follow in order to protect a shared folder
Step 1
Navigate to the folder on your computer’s shared drive that you want to password-protect.
Step 2
Right-click on the folder. A small gray menu then appears.

Step 3
Scroll to the bottom of the menu to the “Properties” tab.

Step 4
Double-click on the “Properties” tab.

Step 5
Navigate to the “Sharing” tab at the far right and click on it.

Step 6
Navigate to the bottom of the “Sharing” tab and check the “Make this folder private” box.

Step 7
Click on the “Apply” button at the bottom of the display.

Step 8
Click “OK” at the bottom of the display. The folder is then set to the administrator’s password.

It is very essential to password protect shared folders for security reason
I hope these steps are understandable.
