Este estudio analiza las propiedades psicométricas de una escala de seguridad digital (DSS-A) en una muestra de 868 adolescentes (460 chicas, 408 chicos), compuesta por 424 en etapa de adolescencia temprana (M edad = 11.84 años, DE = 0.36) y 444 en etapa de adolescencia media (M edad = 13.44, DE = 0.49). La muestra se dividió aleatoriamente en dos con fines de validación (n = 434) y validación cruzada (n = 434). Se confirmó el ajuste de un modelo de un factor de segundo orden, con cuatro factores de primer orden (protección de datos personales, relaciones seguras, uso saludable de Internet y autorrevelación). Tal como se esperaba, las dimensiones de seguridad digital se asociaron positivamente con la mediación parental. En este modelo, se confirmó la invarianza de medición por género y etapa de la adolescencia. La comparación de medias latentes mostró diferencias por género y etapa de la adolescencia. En general, los hallazgos indican que este modelo de medida es útil para medir los comportamientos de los adolescentes en materia de seguridad digital.
