On December 29, 2015 the entire Breaker team was acquired by LifeLock, Inc to join its Product and Technology team in Mountain View, CA.

LifeLock gives people a sense of confidence to live freely in an always-connected world. It leverages data science and patented technology to provide identity threat detection, proactive identity alerts, and comprehensive remediation services.

Breaker’s mission was to bring people closer to their friends through shared interests. Powered by the BreakRank algorithm, which analyzed and sorted personalized content from YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, and Vine, the app stimulated thousands of engaging chats among friends. Our loyal users likened it to WhatsApp meets Flipboard, as it combined messenger and newsreader functionality into a single experience. Since its launch, Breaker was featured in the App Store alongside social networking heavyweights.

We would like to extend a huge thank you to all our users, partners, advisors, and investors for their incredible support. It is our sincere hope that Breaker strengthened your friendships and helped you explore your passions.

We are ecstatic to join the LifeLock team and leverage our mobile product, engineering, and design expertise to develop new, innovative experiences on both iOS and Android platforms.
