How to unlock a public gallery that has a password?

I am using the SmugMug API. I can authenticate fine to my account and iterate through the albums/images.

I also want to do the same for a site that is a publicly open to anyone but is password protected. (for example the account my kids camp posts their pictures to).

I am assuming I don't need to authenticate (because i can get to the photos on the website just typing in the password). However, I don't know what URI to use to put in the password.

I found an unlock function mentioned in the API documentation. I can see it available through the live API browser but I can't figure out how to call it correctly. I tried putting the password into the password field and clicking the POST button but I get an error saying it is the wrong password (even though I know it is the correct one as I can log into the gallery with it). I am also not sure what level (account, folder, or album) to unlock at.

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
