Google, which acquired Bump and its sister application Flock in September, will now shutter the app on Jan. 31.
The news was announced by the former chief executive and founder of Bump David Lieb. From his post:
We are now deeply focused on our new projects within Google, and we’ve decided to discontinue Bump and Flock. On January 31, 2014, Bump and Flock will be removed from the App Store and Google Play. After this date, neither app will work, and all user data will be deleted.

Lieb also said that he and others have made it easy for users to export data. Users can open either app and follow instructions to export data. Users will receive a follow-up email with a link to all data.
