This literature study uses various relevant sources to analyze the relationship between digital literacy and strengthening character education. Aspects such as technological knowledge, digital skills, responsible online behavior and ethical awareness in the digital world are the main focus. The results show that digital literacy can be an effective tool to strengthen learners' character in the era of society 5.0.  Through digital literacy, learners can develop fundamental values such as honesty, responsibility, empathy, cooperation and problem-solving skills.
