Why does this not work?

This code does not work:

var firstName = prompt("Please insert you first name:");
if (firstName !== "Sufiyaan") {
    alert("Sorry, I dont know you.");
}
else (firstName === "Sufiyaan") {
    alert("Hi, I know you.");
}

We don't pass condition for else block, if you want to pass another condition use elseif

var firstName = prompt("Please insert you first name:");
if (firstName != "Sufiyaan") {
    alert("Sorry, I dont know you.");
}else {
    alert("Hi, I know you.");
}
