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 full-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

  1. Download Termux.

  2. apt update && apt upgrade

  3. To install OpenSSH run pkg install openssh

  • thanks for the suggestion. Is it possible to install the SSH server as well in termux ? Mar 29, 2019 at 13:53
  • @JustKhaithang I do not think so, not without root it won't work

  • Standard Linux usage. See scp --help
