Hi Davide,

You are going to want to use a while loop to determine if the value of secret, meaning what is entered into the prompt, is equal to sesame, if it is not, you will want to continue returning the prompt until it does.

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