Nomophobe or Nomophobia—“no mobile phone phobia”—is the fear of being without a mobile phone. The term goes back to 2008 when the U.K. Post Office commissioned a study to examine anxieties caused by the lack of mobile phones.
The study found that 53 percent, or more than half, of the respondents, suffered from nomophobia. A more recent study found two-thirds of survey respondents in the U.K. exhibited symptoms of nomophobia.
