    Default [SOLVED] Need help with Loops...please!

    Hey thanks for your time. Can you please help me with my program. Originally this code asks the user to input a password until he/she gets it correct. But I am suppose to change the code to make it where the user gets only 3 tries to get it correct. Can somebody please help me and tell me what I am suppose to do. Thanks!

    import java.util.Scanner;
    class Example3 {
    public static void main (String[] args)
    {
    Scanner scan = new Scanner(System.in);
    String password = "";
    while(!(password.equals("branes")))
    {
    System.out.println("What is the password");
    password = scan.nextLine();
    }
    System.out.println("Welcome!");
    }
    }

    BLUE= Change to whatever you want

    Java Code:
    import java.util.Scanner;
    class Loop1 {
    
        public static void main (String[] args)
    {
    
            int count = 1;
    
            Scanner scan = new Scanner(System.in);
            String password = "";
    
            boolean foundpassword = false;
            while(count <= 3)
            {
                System.out.println("What is the password");
                password = scan.nextLine();
                if(password.equals("[COLOR="Navy"]Zebra is cool[/COLOR]"))
                {
                    count = 4;
                    foundpassword = true;
                }
                else
                {
                    count = count + 1;
                }
            }
    
                if(foundpassword == true)
                {
                    System.out.println("[COLOR="Navy"]Welcome![/COLOR]");
                }
                else
                {
                    System.out.println("[COLOR="Navy"]Sorry...you failed![/COLOR]");
    
                }
            }

    Nice one!

    I have done it for you this time but in future please add the [code] [ /code] tags around your code. It makes it much easier to reads and avoids errors.
