Username and Password using String

I am a beginner. I already have the code for username and password for a single set. I am trying to figure out how to make it possible to have three different sets of username and password. I have this code, but it only prints "invalid"

#include <stdio.h>
#include <string.h>

int main(){
	
	char userName[3][20] = {"maan", "james1", "taylorswift13"};
	char password[3][20] = {"12345", "67890", "abcde"};
	char user1[20],pass1[30];
	int i;
	
	printf("\nEnter Username:");
	gets(user1);
	printf("\nEnter Password:");
	gets(pass1);
	
	if(strcmp(user1, userName[i])==0 && strcmp(pass1,password[i])==0)
		printf("VALID");
	else
		printf("INVALID");

}


Thank you!

int i; i is uninitialized. i.e. garbage value.

if(strcmp(user1, userName[i])==0 && strcmp(pass1,password[i])==0)
Using uninitialized value of i.

if(strcmp(user1, userName[i])==0 && strcmp(pass1,password[i])==0)
printf("VALID");
else
printf("INVALID");

This block of code need to be in a loop in order to compare each of the 3 usernames and passwords.

PLEASE ALWAYS USE CODE TAGS (the <> formatting button) when posting code.
It makes it easier to read your code and also easier to respond to your post.

Thank you for this! Also, sorry about the formatting of my question. It's my first time :) Thanks again!
I already added a loop, but it still prints INVALID everytime.

Hello mariann,

#include <iostream>
#include <string>

//using namespace std;  // <--- Best not to use.

int main()
{
    std::string message;
    char tF = 'n';

    while (tF == 'n')
    {
        std::cout << "\n Please enter message to encode:\n > ";
        std::getline(cin, message);

        //std::cout << " Is this correct? y/n: " << endl << message << endl;
        std::cout << "\n Is this correct? y/n: ";
        std::cin >> tF;

        std::cin.ignore(std::numeric_limits<std::streamsize>::max(), '\n');  // <--- Requires header file <limits>.
    }

    return 0;
}

for lines 14 and 17 I had to use the "get_s" to get the program to compile. If you can not use this just go back to what you started with.

Edit: Sorry copied and pasted the wrong code.
