The omnipresent mobile networks, such as Wi-Fi, WLAN, and network provided by mobile operators, facilitate the whole world connected. Mobile technology users can access to the world with the networks, making them feel constant connection to others which predicts the perception of invasion. This study aims to explore the boundary condition of this relationship from two perspectives—individuals’ psychological needs and social norms. This study theorizes that psychological needs strengthen the effect of accessibility of omnipresent networks, while social norms weaken that effect. Data was collected from 223 employees with mobile technology usage in their work. The results support our justifications, and discussion and implications are also presented.
