Clickjacking

Updated: 05/23/2017 by Computer Hope

Clickjacking is a technique used to deceive users into clicking a link which they did not intend to click. To "steal" the user's clicks, a clickjacking site may create a transparent frame in front of the visible window, which can intercept any mouse input. For example, a developer could create a clickjack site that causes the user to agree to give him or her rights to that person's webcam without them knowing.
