do while loop

I believe that is the correct syntax of the do while loop but it does not seems working.

script.js
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.");

As you are now asking for the prompt prior to the while condition check, you don't need to assign a prompt to secret prior to the do while loop. So if you do this, it will work:

var secret;
