Beside that, also the phenomenon of sexual harassment [2]. Likewise, cases that occur in the adolescents' environment are cyberbullying [3]. Based on this background, this study aims to determine the influence of life satisfaction and loneliness on problematic internet use. Therefore, the researcher uses a quantitative approach with a sample of 348 respondents who meet the criteria between aged 13 to 15 years old and access the internet from gadgets. The validity test of the measuring instrument is confirmatory factor analysis with hypothesis testing is multiple regression analysis. This study produced a significant influence between life satisfaction and loneliness variables on problematic internet use by 57.2%. Based on the results of hypothesis testing are two variables that have a significant effect on problematic internet use, namely friend satisfaction and emotional loneliness.
