I don't trust any SSH app on the App Store to make secure connections.

Any clue if there exist open-source terminals for iPhone or iOS?

    Donno why this is downvoted. Logging in to your server via some Foo company software is never a good idea.

The best ssh client I've used on iOS is Prompt from Panic Software.

That being said, there are open source ssh clients for iOS, like Blink Shell which also provides you with a local shell. Blink is available for free from iOs App Store.

  • blink shell is not free
