There may be times when you want to stop going through a loop early. To do that, you can use the break keyword:


for( let i = 0; i < 5; i++) {
  if (i === 3) {
      break;
  }
    console.log(i);
}

In that example, we say that if our i variable is 3, we want to break out of the loop. So, that loop will print three numbers to the console: 0, 1, and 2.

Once you break out of a loop, you can't re-enter, so make sure you really want to break out of the loop.
