authenticate method returns error
In this quiz question:
Type the method that we would call on the user object to check the submitted password:
user = User.find_by(email: params[:email]) if user && user. (?)
I am writing the authenticate method as
if user && user.authenticate(params[:password])
But it fails. Why? What am I doing wrong? Any help?
