Half of the UK’s grown adult population have been fearful that they will lose phone signal, run out of battery, or misplace their phone, according to a survey.
One poll asked 1,000 men and women in the UK if they had ever experienced ‘nomophobia’. 42 percent of respondents said they would take their phones to the beach with them on holiday, and 28 percent of those surveyed said they check work email while abroad.
A fifth said they had checked their email in bed, while a quarter admitted they’d check texts and emails even while on a date.
Security company App River commissioned the survey. Analyst Fred Touchette said it’s clear Brits are totally reliant on mobile devices, for personal and business use – so it’s handy to have the ability to remotely wipe your data.
Say, would that be from a company like App River..?
