Introduction. The spread of new information and communication technologies results in cyberpsychology being proposed as the integration of new digital media into human relationships and life, also, as technological immersion in professional practices. This implies challenges in understanding the changes that technology has produced in individual and social development. The objective of this article was to propose a reflection on the ethical aspects of cyberpsychology and its practical implications, according to a care approach which integrates the wellbeing principle in a virtual environment. Topics of reflection. Firstly, the main regulations for cyberpsychology are analyzed in the framework of the ethical and biŚthical principles, with emphasis on the Colombian context. Secondly, we reflect on the care approach and some considerations for digital media. Finally, some practical implications of cyberpsychology are reviewed. Conclusions. The care approach and its application to cyberpsychology is one of the ethical anchors aimed at the promotion of wellbeing-based relationships. Ethical discussions from the care approach to digital media integrate technical-professional competency with ethical competency. This implies a constant analysis of the appropriation of technologies as a meeting space and as part of the commitment to self and user care.
