Error How to unzip multiple files (encrypted) in a directory.

Good day all.

I want to unzip multiple files in a directory. Suppose there are two files: and
Using this command:
unzip -o -P [PASSWORD] test*.zip

results in the unzipping of the first file not second.
It gives this error:

caution: filename not matched:

Please help.

you could use:

for x in text*zip; do unzip -o -P [PASSWORD] $x ; done
