Hi Virginia —

Try this:

var secret;

do {
  secret = prompt("What is the secret password?");
}
while ( secret !== "sesame" ) {
}

document.write("You know the secret password. Welcome.");

This declares secret variable outside of and before loop. Also be careful of indentation consistency and to only write while once. Way to go—keep at it!

thanks it worked

What goes wrong?

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