More about nomophobia
Nomophobia is an abbreviation of “no mobile phobia,” in which phobia refers to general worrying. While the nomophobia we’re featuring today was first recorded in English in the late 2000s, a different type of nomophobia appeared in English at the turn of the 19th century. The earlier nomophobia comes from Ancient Greek nómos, “law, management,” and means “fear of laws.”
