Why do I keep getting an error with my code?

Here is my code. Can someone please advise me on what I am doing wrong for this do...while loop challenge? Thank you.

// Display the prompt dialogue while the value assigned to `secret` is not equal to "sesame"
let secret = prompt("What is the secret password?");
const password = "seseme";

//check the passwrd, if it is false (secret !== seseme), run the alert prompt, until secret = seseme
do {
  secret = prompt("What is the secret password?");
} while ( secret !== password );

// This should run after the loop is done executing
alert("You know the secret password. Welcome!");

Great work, you've solved the challenge. There's a simple change to make in there to get the "Check Work" test to pass your solution.

Read the last line of the requirements very carefully:

Add a do...while loop that keeps displaying the prompt dialog until the user types 'sesame'.
