/*This is a C++ Program. This Program asks the User to Enter their Username and Password

(Password is Input in Hidden form"*"), after doing so the Program compares that is Username equals to "admin" and

is password equals to "abc123".*/

//The Problem is that it shows that the Login is not correct even though I Input the correct information.





using namespace std;

int main()



  string username;

  cout<<"please Enter your Username: ";

  getline(cin, username);

  cout<<"Please Enter Your Password: ";

  char password[32];

  int i=0;

  char a;












      cout<<"\b \b";









  cout<<"\nYour username is: "<<username;

  cout<<"\nYour Password is: "<<password;







  cout<<"\nWrong Username or Password, please Try again\n";

  goto tryagain;


  return 0;

I'm not sure but Maybe you compare string with poiter to char[]  here:




 if(username=="admin"&&( strcmp (password,"abc123"))!=1 )

Or do it by char.
