There are a couple of issues here. First, the DO statement does not use a conditional. So you will need to remove yours.

do {

Secondly, the test condition does not need to change. Keep using the !== comparison.

}while(secret !== "sesame");

Finally, the advantage of using the DO statement means that you will not need to prompt the user before the loop, but you will still need to declare the variable.

var secret;

I did change as said but still no working

1
var secret = prompt("What is the secret password?");
2
var secret;
3
do {
4
  secret = prompt("What is the secret password?");   
5
} while ( secret !== "sesame" ) 
6

7
document.write("You know the secret password. Welcome.");
