Definition - What does Nomophobia mean?

Nomophobia is referred to a psychological syndrome in which a person is afraid of being out of mobile or cell phone contact.

Nomophobia, coined from a term “no-mobile-phone-phobia” during a research study to find out the psychological ramifications and stress level of mobile phone usage on behavior, describes the level of fear generated when a user is unable to communicate through their cell phone.

Techopedia explains Nomophobia

Nomophobia primarily is a fear exhibited in human being when their cell phone is unable to perform the most basic of communication functionality that it is designed to provide. This behavior is triggered when for any operational, technical or even general reason the mobile phone is inactive such as lack of network signal, low reception, empty battery, finished credit or forgetting the cell phone at home or office.

Nomophobia is clearly visible in all those individuals that use their cell phone to communicate and keep in touch with their employees, colleagues, friend and family.
