Nomophobia - smartphone separation anxiety

Nomophobia - smartphone separation anxiety

The four major characteristics of nomophobia (no-mobile-phone phobia): 1) Can't communicate - people feel insecure when they can't text or call their friends and family; 2) Lost connectedness - people feel they're disconnected from their online identity; 3) Can't access information - people feel inadequate because they can't Google answers to their questions or find directions with a swipe, for example; 4) It's inconvenient - people feel annoyed that they can't accomplish simple tasks, such as making plans or dinner reservations, as easily without a smartphone.
