Despite 60 per cent considering the idea unacceptable just five years ago.
Home insurance firm Sheilas' Wheels has compiled a 'tech-iquette' report, which reviews just how mobile phone dependent society has become throughout all hours of the day.
The report reveals that Brits spend an average of 48 minutes on their phone during a night out, while sending up to three emails, 12 texts and two pictures.
Unsurprisingly, the under 25s are the most active, spending up to 94 minutes on the phone.
Social networks and apps are also a factor here, with users sending on average three messages and two status updates. Meanwhile 31 per cent of men admitted to checking the news or sport on their smartphones during social occasions.
Bedtime doesn't appear to halt the need for mobile companionship as 18 per cent of men and 16 per cent of women sleep with their phones next to them in bed.
The study also revealed lax attitudes to personal security among mobile users when talking in public.
It found 29 per cent have revealed their place of work, 19 per cent have revealed their date of birth and home address, while ten percent have gone as far as disclosing their mother's maiden name and 14 per cent have even discussed their private medical issues.
Jacky Brown at Sheilas' Wheels home insurance, said: "The addiction to our phones is not just taking its toll on our social lives but also making us more susceptible to fraud and burglary.
"Many people seem to enter their own bubble when they pick up the phone and don't look around to see who could be listening or watching what's being typed. Homeowners should try to keep personal calls to the safety of their own home rather than in a public place so as not to reveal any sensitive information."
