Packet Tracer 12.2: Switch's Current Enable Secret Password Invalid

Hello! I'm a student in a Cybersecurity Certification. I've been consistently having trouble with my Packet Tracer 12.2 enable secret password. I get to the privileged EXEC mode and enter the command "enable secret password 'Password'". However when I exit out of the privileged mode into user mode and test my secret password the password line doesn't fill (which I've assumed is standard for security) but my secret password doesn't work. After 3 attempts I get the bad secrets message and it happens with every switch I configure on packet tracer. How can I fix this or what am I doing wrong?

what device in PT? and PT has reach version 8, there is no 12.x, So, not sure what you mean.

when u do show run , you should see something like

enable secret 5 $1$

Login or not, use password or not is also part of line configs, show us part of your config with

line con 0

!

line vty 0 4

login

line vty 5 15

login

 

Note:PT from Cisco Net Academy is just a software Simulator; it does not run on real IOS or virtual IOS; It is close to IOS but It does not really behave like real IOS would (some simply features do).
PT is excellent tool to learn and practice networking fundamentals and commands for CCNA exam.
