login first or last?

in theory cisco says that you enter login first and then password:

Router(config)#line console 0



In practice (e-labs) cisco asks you to enter the password first and then login.

May someone explain to me please if there is a difference in the sequence?

Yes, there is a difference in the sequence ... in the first you're entering 'login' first and in the next you're entering 'login' last. So the sequence is reversed. That's the difference in the sequence.

There's no difference in the final result though.

The difference in configuration mode you're in.
