Abstract:This study is aimed to explore the health risks associated with smartphone addiction among a sample of UH West Oahu Public Administration student population. The study instrument comprised of 7 segments; informed consent form, consent acceptance page, demographic details, habituation, Social Media details, smartphone facts, and health issues. Frequency of the data is calculated and summarized in the results.

Owning and/or utilizing a smartphone device, similar to buying and selling drug substance(s), can act as a doorway to behavioral addiction. Majority of respondents were from the Millenial period, of which over 50% indicated nomophobic behavior. Thus, with technology now being incorporated in the classrooms, it is important to control the device usage in children to monitor and prevent problematic cellphone dependency in the future.
