Hi Simon,

here's the code that passes the challenge:

var secret;

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

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

The key difference between while and do while loop is that do while loop executes code first and then checks whether the condition is met(so it runs code at least once whether condition is met or not) - while loop checks condition first and then run the code.
