How to verify signatures

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.

Running MuWire

The first time you start MuWire it takes 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. For more info see MuWire Nicknames.



* You can search by keywords or by file hash. All keywords have to match for a result to be returned.
* You can also use search phrases, for more info see Search Phrases.

File Hashes

If want to share or download 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.
To get the file hash, righ-click on the file and select "Copy Hash To Clipboard".

File Comments

You can add comments about your shared files from MuWire or using Sidecar Files. When someone searches for a keyword that is present in the comments, they will see a search result and can see the comment and download the file.

File Feeds

You can publish your shared files to your personal feed, and subscribe to the feeds of other users. For more info see File Feeds

File Certificates

You can issue a certificate for a file you share to prove to others that you have the file. For more info see File Certificates


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.
Here is a video demonstrating the chat functionality:


You can choose to trust or distrust other MuWire users. For more information see Trust In MuWire.
