The population in the research consisted of as many as 217 respondents with a sample size of 141 respondents. The variables used in the research were insomnia as the dependent variable and internet addiction as the independent one. The instrument used was a questionnaire with a univariate and bivariate analysis.

Results: The results of the study used the Spearman Rho test with a value of p = 0,000.

Conclusion: From these results, it could be concluded that there is a relationship between internet addiction and the incidence of insomnia.
