    SSHelper is an advanced, multi-protocol, secure server for the Android platform.

    SSHelper works just fine with a normal, unrooted Android device — i.e. your device. It also offers special features on rooted devices.

    SSHelper works as an application and as a service. As a service it runs in the background, providing secure communications protocols without requiring user attention.

    SSHelper supports interactive Secure Shell (hereafter SSH) sessions and various kinds of transfers including scp, sftp, and rsync, on all common platforms:

    On Windows, SSHelper works with WinSCP, PuTTY and similar programs.

    On Linux, apart from normal SSH shell session activities, SSHelper can be used directly with file browsers for seamless filesystem browsing and transfers by specifying the "sftp:" protocol.

    On the Mac, SSHelper works with Cyberduck and similar programs.

    SSHelper versions >= 7.8 accepts any network type that Android recognizes -- it's no longer limited to wireless networks.

    SSHelper announces itself on your network by way of Zeroconf/Bonjour, an efficient way to configure a local network.

    SSHelper includes a log monitor Web server showing an activity log on local network browsers.

    SSHelper also includes a clipboard Web server that permits read/write access to the Android clipboard from local network browsers.

    SSHelper is free, open-source and there are no ads. It's licensed under the GPL and the source is freely available.

    The SSHelper Home Page is located at -- visit for more information and configuration tips.

    Super impressed unfortunately I was looking for a client and this is a server. When I need a server this is the app I will use.

    It doesn't what it should do, nothing less, nothing more. Perfect.

    I kept searching for quite a while, tried at least four other implications only to find this one. Simple, stable, works.

    A great awesome app. A life saver to back up precious data when many many other solutions fail. Using SSHelper after a few days of trying many other solutions was the only way I could copy my data reliably to my Linux machine. Using MTP I couldn't even see all the files. Using FTP client I could finally see all the files, but copying is unreliable. If the connection dropped for a reason or another I might get half a file in which case I have to either overwrite all files or skip all files. Using SSHelper and rsync was the best way possible. Also the interface was implemented in a great way: simple, easy and efficient. It just works without any hassle. This tool should have been part of Android OS itself.
