How to Install Filezilla Without Getting Potentially Unwanted Programs


Return to home page.

The default installer for FileZilla, popular program for FTP, SFTP, and other protocols, may leave your PC with potentially unwanted and potentially malicious software.

Forunately, it is possible to download and install Filezilla without the bundled software, by adding ?show_all=1 to the end of the URL - so the URL would look like https://filezilla-project.org/download.php?show_all=1.

From there, at least as of writing this post, you will now be able to safely download Filezilla for all supported operating systems.
