Every day, new digital services with innovative features appear. As time goes by, the Internet integrates more deeply with our lives. Threats and vulnerabilities derived from the nuances of computing and the Internet are translated into real-life dangers. This is particularly critical for inexperienced users, who are easy victims of digital fraud. Improper use of digital services might lead them to access unsuitable information or incorrectly use legitimate services. Technologies enforcing online user activity control have emerged but face limitations regarding their digital-service independence. Oversee (online user supervision architecture) lets Internet services stipulate that users comply with a series of requirements or be accompanied by a qualified supervisor. Thus the supervisor can manage online user behavior.
