    Best Free SSH Client App for Android Devices

    What is SSH?

    SSH stands for Secure Shell and in simpler words it is typically used to log into a remote machine and execute commands, through SSH access we can execute any command on any remote server like we do locally in our systems with terminal. SSH Server needs to be installed on the remote server, through the ip, user id and password of thet remote server we can execute any command through a ssh client like putty (Putty is one of the most popular and free ssh client available for Windows).

    There are many instances when we need to be able to log into a remote server via SSH. Sometimes we are on a desktop or laptop and can handle that easily, and other times the only tool we have available is an Android device.
