A growing - yet debated - discussion around the negative aspects of overusing technology led researchers and practitioners to consider a new kind of psychological digital wellbeing, giving rise to the flourishing of digital self-control tools (DSCTs). As many people nowadays own and use several devices, there is a need to understand better their overlapping use (and non-use) and the relationships to digital wellbeing. This special issue aims to provide the academic and industry research communities a venue for work at the state-of-the-art on digital wellbeing and DSCTs, with a particular focus on digital wellbeing within complex technological and social contexts.
