Prompt for Mac

The SSH app with speed & style.

In English
Version 3.0.1

Prompt overview

Prompt is the terminal that goes where you do, whether you're on the road or at your desk. With Panic Sync, your servers are available on your iPhone, iPad, and Mac. With Mosh and Eternal Terminal support, you can stay connected even on the most unstable networks. And with both local terminals and remote connections on the Mac, Prompt is the SSH app that does it all.

Welcome to Prompt 3. For over a decade, Prompt has been the best SSH terminal on iOS and iPadOS, and we're excited to finally release a much-requested Mac version. But that's not all. With two new connection types, port forwarding, and a faster terminal, Prompt is better than ever.

  • Superfast SSH - We retooled the text engine in Prompt 3 to be up to 10x faster, and with improved terminal emulation, you can run nvim inside tmux without breaking a sweat.
  • Clips - Put your most-used commands and text bits into clips and access them with a single tap via Prompt’s keyboard bar. Clips can be stored globally or per-server.
  • Secure Enclave - Authenticate with FaceID and TouchID. The keys will stay secure on your device.
  • Panic Sync - Sync your favorite servers, passwords, private keys, and clips, between Prompt on all of your iOS devices.
  • Customizable - Make Prompt perfect with new themes, fonts, and a very configurable iOS keyboard.
  • Jump Hosts and Agent Forwarding - Access corporate servers, even at the beach.
  • Mosh and Eternal Terminal - Keep your terminal open, even when you get disconnected. Mosh is optimized for high-latency, low-throughput networks. Eternal Terminal is great for when you need to keep your full terminal history on a flaky connection.
  • Mouse Support - Use your mouse to interact with TUI-based apps that run through the terminal.
