It looks like you are missing "secret =" in front of "prompt("What is the secret password?"); So that you can assign the user input to the secret variable. Hope this helps.

You're really close, but you need to store the result of calling "prompt" in your variable so it can be compared in the loop.

I'll bet you can get it now without an explicit code spoiler. :wink:

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