In the first part, we are asking for the password and storing it in a variable.

a while loop needs to check a condition and while that condition is not true it will run the code within it's loop.

while (some condition) {
   run this
}

So here it wants to verify if the correct password is given. The password being seasame.

We need to run the loop as long as secret is not sesame which is the same as secret !== "sesame"

so...

var secret = prompt("What is the secret password?");

while (secret !== "sesame") { secret = prompt("Wrong Answer! What is the secret password?"); }

document.write("You know the secret password. Welcome.");
