shoulder surfing

<security> Secretly watching someone perform some supposedly secure action; looking over their shoulder. The canonical example is watching what keys someone presses when they enter a password. Other examples include using binoculars to watch someone across the street enter their PIN in a cash machine or simply reading sensitive information off somebody's screen without them realising.
