COVID-19 has required major changes in behavior and created significant health and economic concerns for many individuals. In this context, we have explored people’s ethical judgments and found that marketing practices judged as highly unethical before the pandemic, were judged to be much less unethical one year later. Experience of lockdown affected ethical judgments, with number of people in the household, lockdown duration, and time spent on social media associated with less unethical judgments. Broader effects of the pandemic, including negative affect, diminished well-being, and financial difficulties, were also associated with less ethical concern.
