    Eavesdropping means snooping or spying on someone.  For example, he is eavesdropping on her cell phone calls because he suspects she is cheating on him.

    to over hear someone else conversation secretly, for example: John has a bad habit of eavesdropping his sister's conversation with her best friend in the bedroom

    Eavesdropping is listening to other people's conversations in secret. Like Imee is eavesdropping at her cousin's conversation with her boyfriend on the phone. It is not a nice thing to do especially when you pass what has been discussed by the two people to other people.

    Eavesdropping in my opinion is the (intentional act) of listening in on a conversation between two or more people without their knowledge.
    Sample sentence
    Ubeknownst to Rohan his wife was eavesdropping while he planned her surprise birthday party.
