Araştırmada bilinçli farkındalığın dolaylı etki tahminini bulabilmek için SPSS Macro Process programı kullanılmıştır. Aracı rolün istatistiksel olarak anlamlılığı bootstrap testi ile hesaplanmıştır. Bulgular: Araştırma sonucunda bilinçli farkındalık ile problemli akıllı telefon ve internet kullanımı arasında orta düzeyde ve negatif yönde ilişkilerin olduğu bulunmuştur. Bunun yanı sıra, problemli akıllı telefon ve internet kullanımı arasında orta düzeyde ve pozitif yönde ilişkilerin olduğu görülmüştür. Araştırmada problemli akıllı telefon ve internet kullanımı arasındaki ilişkide bilinçli farkındalığın kısmi aracı rol oynadığı belirlenmiştir. Sonuç: Araştırma sonucunda bilinçli farkındalığın aracılık etkisine yönelik modelin doğrulandığı görülmüştür.
