Is it for treehouse site or git? I know when git prompts you for a password it doesn't actually print anything to the screen. If it's for the treehouse site maybe just restart your web browser after clearing out all the cookies

yes, thank you! The instructor didn't mention that it would't show until the middle of the video, so I just had to keep watching to figure it out.

The password doesn't show on the console for security purposes. It's working, you just won't see it.
