Nomophobia, also called no mobile phobia, is a term to describe fear without communicating with people through a mobile phone. It is very important to recognize that people are becoming the victims of nomophobia. The present study was designed to study the nomophobia among young. The aims of study were to measure the level of nomophobia in young people and to study the cognition of young people regarding the advantages and advantages of mobile phone usages. This is a cross–sectional study that would be used for a period of 1 months from 18th November 2021 to 29th December 2021 to survey about 278 young Vietnamese people in Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam. Findings show that most of participants of this study in the age group of 18-33 years. This study indicated that 26.13% of population have severe nomophobia, 49% have moderate nomophobia and 24.18 % were mild nomophobia. A higher proportion of males had severe nomophobia compared to males. In sum, prevention is better than cure, most of the subjects using mobile phones belong to younger age group therefore the program for intervention and education should be targeted to youth to help them know how to use mobile phones effectively and prevent some harm from physical and mental health.
