Easy anonymous file sharing using I2P technology

MuWire is a file sharing program inspired by LimeWire but completely anonymous. It uses I2P for all communication thus keeping your IP address private. You can share, search and download files of any type without relying on a centralized tracker like BitTorrent.

MuWire is completely free and open source. There are no bundled ads or offers of any kind, and it does not solicit donations.

Running MuWire

Be aware that the first time you start MuWire it could take a few minutes to load.

The first time you run MuWire it will ask you to choose a nickname. That nickname is combined with a cryptographically strong I2P address and forms your unique identity on MuWire. Other users can choose to trust you and verify that the files you share are really shared by you.

What is Trust and how does it work

Be careful who you trust in an anonymous network! It is recommended to first download a file from someone and verify the file is genuine before trusting them.
