fusermount3 - mount and unmount FUSE filesystems


Filesystem in Userspace (FUSE) is a simple interface for userspace programs to export a virtual filesystem to the Linux kernel. It also aims to provide a secure method for non privileged users to create and mount their own filesystem implementations.

fusermount3 is a program to mount and unmount FUSE filesystems. It should be called directly only for unmounting FUSE file systems. To allow mounting and unmounting by unprivileged users, fusermount3 needs to be installed set-uid root.
