Javascript Do Quiz question

Hello all,

I am having trouble getting my code to do what the quiz wants. I've watched the video multiple times, and am trying to build my code based of the example in the last video. Can anyone look at this and tell me whats wrong. Thanks

script.js
var password = 'Sesame';
var correctGuess = false
var guess; 

do {
  guess = prompt("What is the secret password?");
  if (guess === password) {
    correctGuess = true;
  }
} while ( ! correctGuess ) 
  document.write("You know the secret password. Welcome.");

Hey John,

Good job with this! Unfortunately, the challenges can be really specific, and it's looking for "sesame" not "Sesame." Try changing your password variable to "sesame" with a lowercase S, and the challenge should accept your code.
