Daily Internet use time could assist in the screening of problematic Internet use

Our recent study has shown that the Internet use time of 190 mins/day or more, the total physical weekly activity of 60 mins or less, and the sleeping of 6 hours or less per day could be parameters for use to screen university students for problematic Internet use (PIU). Therefore, assessment of daily internet use time could assist in the periodic screening of students at-risk of problematic internet use (PIU). This would help early detection and referral to an appropriate mental health expert for further assessment and management.
