Nomophobia, fear of being without mobile phones on the rise throughout the world


According to a recent study, nomophobia which is the fear of not having a mobile phone or not using one is increasing at an alarming rate throughout the world. Furthermore, the researchers have also found out that around 70% of the people in the world fear leaving behind their mobile phones.

Nomophobia was first observed & reported in the year 2008 & it can also be defined as a condition in which a person exhibits fright when he/she is not using a mobile phone at a particular time. Two thirds of the people also exhibited fear of losing their mobile phones.

The respondents of this study also said that they were unhappy when their partners sneaked into cellphones without permission. When all these were reported to psychologists, they said that nomophobia could lead to loss of memory in the long run.
