What error message are you getting? Looking carefully at the exact wording of the error message can often help.

error message are
Sorry, your code does not pass. Don’t give up.

You should print 'plain text:', text after your for loop.

I have found that generally these tests must be followed exactly - ie not after your first print

the new print command should be before the previous one, like so:
print(‘plain text:’, text)

print(‘encrypted text:’, encrypted_text)
