Life360, a San Francisco, CA-based safety and coordination service for families worldwide, acquired ZenScreen, the San Jose, Calif.-based AI-powered solution that guides users and their family to screen time habits for a more balanced digital diet.
The amount of the deal was not disclosed.
Founded in 2017, ZenScreen is a cross-platform app and browser extension that pairs artificial intelligence with research-backed best practices to provide monitoring of app usage, suggestions of breaks, and restriction of access to apps in evenings and early mornings.
ZenScreen automatically categorizes every app into three categories:
Entertainment apps – use within a set daily limit
Productive apps – use as much as you want until time to wind down at night
Ignore – apps that don’t need to be monitored at all (like clock, calendar)
Led by Chris Hulls, CEO, Life360 offers an app for families featuring communications, driving safety and location sharing, which has more than 20 million MAU located in more than 160 countries.
