I keep getting a different prompt than what I am supposed to have in the video. Please help!

The incorrect prompt that I keep on getting is: "Can you fix this Javascript"?

var passphrase = 'Hi'; console.log(passphrase.length);

<!DOCTYPE html> <html lang="en"> <head> <meta charset="utf-8"> <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/main.css"> <title>Using the prompt method?</title> </head> <body> <div class="container"> <script src="scripts.js"></script> </div> </body> </html>

Are you trying to get a prompt or log to the console?

if you are trying to log to the console this is correct

var passphrase = "hi";

you can test this by opening dev tools on your browser - going to console and entering in each line - it works!

if you are trying to enter something into a prompt you need to call prompt

hope that points you in the right direction! cheers
