I NEED HELP TELLING ME TO REWATCH THE VIDEO IS NOT WORKING. WHAT DO I NEED TO DO?

The question is unclear and the hints are unclear. Any feedback I've gotten is generic and just says to rewatch the video. I literally DO NOT understand how to do it. If someone could correct my code or show me where I'm going wrong that would be a huge help.

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

It would work in real live the way you have it but it would ask the user multiple times for the password and only check it once. Just remove two of the prompts like this:

var secret = "";
do {
   secret = prompt("What is the secret password?");

} while ( secret !== "sesame" ) 
  document.write("You know the secret password. Welcome.");

Sometimes the challenges are frustrating because you can't see the output. I will sometimes set them up in workspaces so I can actually see the output if I am stuck.
