Cloaking generally means to present different version of web page contents from of search engines to search robots and human visitors based on their browser’s user agent or IP address. It’s a deceptive method used to cheat search engines in order to rank well for desired keywords.
Not always but in most of the cases, cloaking is also used to trick users to visit certain websites based on their description in search engines. For example a user searching for some product may click on a website in search engine based on its description and title but the final website will not be the one described in SERP’s. It will be a totally different one. Therefore, these practices that are designed to manipulate search engines and deceive users by directing them to sites other than the ones they selected, and that provide content solely for the benefit of search engines should be avoided.

Cloaking is a black hat technique. It refers to the practice of presenting different content or URLs to users and search engines.The content presented to the search engine spider is different from that presented to the user's web browser.When a user is identified as a search engine spider, a server-side script delivers a different website pages version, one that contains content not present on the visible page, or that is present but not searchable. The motive of cloaking is sometimes to deceive search engines so they display. Hence harmful for websites.

Cloaking means to either disguise your traffic source, or to hide that you are redirecting users with an affiliate link.

Cloaking is a black hat search engine optimization technique that is used to deceive search engines in hopes of a better ranking. When a search engine spider arrives at a site, it's IP address is used to trigger the presentation of different content than that which an internet browser would see.
