I have tried SSHjuice and Termius and neither of these have the scp features ( I couldn't find it in the free/trial version ). So can anybody tell me is there any SSH client (free version) for Android that have scp (secure copy ) or sftp features. I couldn't find it in Google. thanks .


For ssh and scp, use Termux. It's a fully feature Linux type terminal for Android. Use it like a normal Linux terminal.

Sftp, scp, and ssh are all included in the openssh package.

It's also free and open source

Download Termux from the play store

To install openssh run

pkg install openssh
  • thanks for the suggestion. Is it possible to install the SSH server as well in termux ? – Just Khaithang Mar 29 at 13:53
  • @JustKhaithang I do not think so, not without root it won't work – colbycdev Mar 29 at 13:59
  • I just installed tmux and SSH client and I want to copy a file to my android from my Linux server. what would be the command for that ? – Just Khaithang Mar 29 at 14:20
  • Standard Linux usage. See scp --help – colbycdev Mar 29 at 14:32
  • in tmux my home directory is /data/data/com.termux/files/home . So do I have specify this path for the target destination? that's what I wanted to know. – Just Khaithang Mar 29 at 15:13
