SSHDroid is a SSH server implementation for Android.
This application will let you to connect to your device from a PC and execute commands (like "terminal" and "adb shell") or edit files (through SFTP, WinSCP, Cyberduck, etc...).

Root is optional but not required to run this application.

Windows users:
- File Transfer: WinSCP (
- Remote Shell: PuTTY (

Linux users:
- File Transfer: natively supported by most file managers (like Nautilus or Dolphin), just enter the sftp address displayed as "Location".
- Remote Shell: run 'ssh' from the terminal.

Mac users:
- File Transfer: Cyberduck (
- Remote Shell: run 'ssh' from the terminal

q: Why my transfer speed decrease when I turn off the screen?
a: Enable the option 'Lock Wifi'. If your device is running at least Android 2.3.x, you should get full speed transfer even when the screen is off, otherwise enable the option 'Lock screen' too.

q: How can I use a shared key with Putty/Winscp?
a: You have to generate a key from the application in OpenSSH format and use Puttygen to import/convert it in ppk format. A recent version of Puttygen (>= 0.61) is required!

Like this app? Please rate 5 stars so that it can be improved, thanks!

This is an ad-supported application (it won't start if you disabled ad on your device): please consider buying "SSHDroidPro" (which doesn't require enabled ad) if you need an ad-free/donation version.

Works great.

Excellent! Runs only as root? I want to"su" for root and run other commands as a normal user. Also, I need a tutorial on Android terminal commands.

App says ads are disabled but then closes without letting you enable them. First run if app, how come ads are disabled.

Worked flawlessly for me. I couldn't find my USB cable so I used this to scp several songs to my phone.

Seemed to be doing the right thing but no client was able to fully connect. Client log stops at SSH2_MSG_SERVICE_ACCEPT App log says client disconnect
