What is Shoulder Surfing?
Shoulder surfing is a social engineering act of looking over a user's shoulder to gain unauthorized data. A prime example of shoulder surfing is watching someone's keystrokes as they type their password.
Data targeted for theft by criminals through shoulder surfing can include login credentials, debit card PINs for bank access, and more.
Advanced forms of shoulder surfing involve criminals using high-powered binoculars to watch people type credentials from afar. Another example is using CCTV and other video footage to record a person's keystrokes at their computer in a coffee shop or at an ATM.
