var secret = prompt("What is the secret password?"); do { secret = prompt("What is the secret password?");
}while ( secret !== "sesame" ) document.write("You know the secret password. Welcome.");

The answer should be something like this. So do while runs every time the answer is not sesame from the prompt.

i tried the exact code you wrote it gave me

Bummer: You only need to call the prompt() method once, and only inside the loop. Hint: Declare the secret variable before the loop.

Oops Sorry, i wasnt thinking properly. The answer should be following. Basically whats happening is prompt ask for the password and gets stored in the secret variable. And if the answer doesnt match with sesame, it keeps on running. Once answer is sesame, it comes out of loop and doucment.write is printed

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

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