I don’t understand the error

It looks correct to me, but I must be missing something. Can I have another set of eyes take a look for me? Thanks.

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.");

Hey Michael,

Give this a try:

var secret;
do {
   secret = prompt("What is the secret password?");
   }while ( secret !== "sesame" );
document.write("You know the secret password. Welcome.");

Hope that helps!
