    You can assign password in either 2 ways [Enable Password or Enable Secret]

    Assign a password for Privilege mode
    ------------------------------------
    [THE LESS-SECURE WAY]
    Switch(config)#enable password xxxxxx

    [THE Strongly recommended Way]
    Switch(config)#enable secret xxxxxx

    Where xxxxxx is your password
    ** Please note that if you typed you password like : xxxxxx[space] your password will then include space , so anything after password or secret is considered as a password

    Q) Why do i use enable password although enable secret is much better ?
    A) Because : some old cisco devices does not support enable secret
