break Statement in JavaScript

The break statement or keyword in JavaScript is used to jump out from the current loop. For example:

HTML with JavaScript Code
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<body>
   
   <script>
      for(let i=0; i<=10; i++)
      {
         if(i==4)
            break;
         console.log(i);
      }
   </script>
   
</body>
</html>

The output produced by above JavaScript example on break statement is:

js break statement

As you can see from the above example, if the value of i becomes 4, then the break statement gets executed to break out from the current loop or to stop the execution of the current loop.
