This paper puts forward some views on the phenomenon that the elderly living alone do not use smartphones comfortably, and gives relevant suggestions for related issues. It seems that the elderly have been abandoned by the Internet, but during the festivals, some filial young people gave their elders a smartphone in order to make the elderly at home feel the fun of mobile phones. In the joy, buried a time bomb. After staying at home for a while during the Chinese New Year, the biggest problem I encountered was teaching older people to use mobile phones. The face-to-face teaching method is undoubtedly the best. But after we left, explaining by telephone and other communication methods could not achieve the same effect, which was simply thankless.
