Nomophobia is a term where ‘Nomo’ means no mobile and ‘phobia’ means fear. Though anyone can suffer from nomophobia. However, this disorder tends to affect adolescents the most, with the 14-16 age group being the most prevalent. Term nomophobia has incurred student's life and their obsession with a mobile phone has reached the point where they feel like they can’t survive without phones. As we are well aware of the fact that addiction to anything can harm human nature, nomophobia is an exact example of it. It’s one of the most dangerous distractions in a student’s life. Nomophobia has been the reason for several death cases:  losing their data, game addiction death, social anxiety, short-term memory loss, losing the ability to learn things easily and many more. The major issue is that people don’t realize that they are suffering from it because they’ve become habitual of it & the stage they’re at also matters. The sign and symptoms of this disease are so normal that one can’t easily recognize them, for example, anxiety, obsession, social anxiety, arrhythmia, headache, respiratory problem, socially incompatible etc. that’s why the diagnosis process of nomophobia is easy because of the student’s majority time expenditure in a virtual world rather than the real world.
