Creating a do...while loop

Is this how to create a do...while loop?

script.js
// Display the prompt dialogue while the value assigned to `secret` is not equal to "sesame"
let secret = prompt("What is the secret password?");
do{
  secret = prompt;
}while ( secret !== 'sesame');
// This should run after the loop is done executing
alert("You know the secret password. Welcome!");

Your loop is already correct!   :+1:

Now, you just need to complete the prompt call inside the loop, and remove the one outside the loop leaving just a simple declaration of secret.
