Code took too long to run?

Somehow my code took too long to run. Is there anything wrong with it?

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

while ( secret !== 'seasame'){
secret = prompt("That's not it! Try again");

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

You have the password set to "seasame" instead of "sesame", so the challenge isn't able to get it right and end the loop.

oh right, thanks for your help !
