add an else clause after encrypted_text += char :white_check_mark:

That part is good

and indent all the subsequent lines of code.

Indent all the lines after the Else you add. You added a line that you dont need instead:

    print("encrypted: " ,encrypted_text)

It is indented correctly though! Remove it, and indent the rest like that

More on formatting if/else:

a = 200
b = 33
if b > a:
  print("b is greater than a")
elif a == b:
  print("a and b are equal")
else:
  print("a is greater than b")
