Flask Bcrypt Challenge 3.

Not sure what I'm doing wrong here, can someone push me in the right direction.

utils.py
from flask.ext.bcrypt import generate_password_hash, check_password_hash

def set_password(User, str):
    User.password = generate_password_hash('Hello')
    return User

def validate_password(User, password):
    if check_password_hash(User.password, str)==True:
        return True
    else:
        return False

  1. In set_password, replace 'Hello' with str.
def set_password(User, str):
    User.password = generate_password_hash(str)
    return User
  1. In validate_password, compare the user password to the supplied password. Can be done in one line as check_password_hash returns true or false
def validate_password(User, password):
    return check_password_hash(User.password, password)
