The number of Brits suffering from nomophobia, the fear of being without their phone, is increasing across the UK.
A new study commissioned by SecurEnvoy surveyed 1,000 people in employment about their relationship and dependence on their mobile phone devices. Interestingly, it found that a majority of Brits are terrified at the idea of living without their mobile phone.
Research concludes that nomophobia is affecting up to 66% of people these days and pointed out that younger mobile users are the more likely to develop nomophobia.
Divided by age, the research shows that 77% of younger adults aged 18 to 24 are more nomophobic, while 68% of Brits aged 25 to 34 years-old admitted so.
