To prevent charge buildup

So [censored] electrons flow from the anode to the cathode, essentially leaves a more positive charge on the left side (anode) compared to the cathode. The salt bridge neutralizes that charge by allowing electrons to migrate back to the left via a sort of concentration gradient where solutes will always move from high to low concentration without the input of any energy.

It basically maintains electrical neutrality which keeps the cell from running its reaction to equilibrium too rapidly

It disrupts the charges from building up and it keeps neutrality.

The purpose of a salt bridge is to maintain charge balance.

Maintain charge balance and connect the oxidation and reduction half-cells

With the flow of electrons from the anode to the cathode, there is a charge buildup in each flask. To neutralize this excessive positive and negative charge, the salt cations and anions from the salt bridge neutralize the charge.

The purpose of the salt bridge is to maintain electrical neutrality between the cathode and anode to keep the cell from reaching equilibrium too quickly.

It helps maintain the balance of the charges
