MuWire is an anonymous file-sharing program. You can share, search and download files of any type.
MuWire is completely free and open source. There are no bundled ads or offers of any kind.
The first time you start MuWire it takes a few minutes to load.
MuWire uses the I2P network to provide anonymity. Connecting to I2P for the first time can take a while.
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. For more info see MuWire Nicknames.
Search by keyword or file hash
You can search by keywords or by file hash. All keywords have to match for a result to be returned.
If want to share or find a specific file you can use the hash to make sure it is the right one. You can share the hash with others and they will get the exact same file.
You can also use search phrases, for more info see Search Phrases.
You can add comments to your shared files with MuWire or by using Sidecar Files. When someone searches for a keyword that is present in a comment, they will see a search result for that file.
You can publish your shared files to your personal feed, and subscribe to the feeds of other users. This is similar to following someone on a social network.
For more info see File Feeds.
Here is a video demonstrating the Feeds functionality:
You can chat with other MuWire users anonymously through the MuWire chat system. It is very similar to IRC. For more information, see MuWire Chat.
