Base64 Encoder and Decoder Free Online Secure Tool
Welcome to our online Base64 encoder and decoder tool! With this tool, you can easily encode or decode any text or binary data to or from the Base64 format. Whether you’re a developer working with encoded data or a business owner trying to encode sensitive information for storage or transmission, our Base64 encoder and decoder tool is here to help.
What is Base 64?
According to definition of Base 64 in Wikipedia:
Base64 is a group of similar binary-to-text encoding schemes that represent binary data in an ASCII string format by translating it into a radix-64 representation. The term Base64 originates from a specific MIME content transfer encoding.
Base64 encoding schemes are commonly used when there is a need to encode binary data that needs to be stored and transferred over media that are designed to deal with ASCII. This is to ensure that the data remain intact without modification during transport. Base64 is commonly used in a number of applications including email via MIME, and storing complex data in XML.
How to Encode Text in Base 64
window.btoa(str) function encrypts the text into base 64 encoding. We have set some validation as well so that you will be getting proper Base 64 encryption. This base 64 encoding keeps the original format of the given text when decoded, so you don’t need to worry about messing u your file content. Simply paste the data in the first text area and click encode. Then simply click on the blue copy button to copy the encoded text to the clipboard.
This can encode JSON, XML, YAML, Java, among any kind of text or files. It keeps the original format.
How to Decode Base 64 Value
window.atob(str) the function does the trick for us. It decodes your base 64 texts very efficiently. It will keep the original encoded text formatting so no need to format the text again after decoding. pate the base 64 encoded text into the first text box area and click on the decode button. then copy the original text via the copy button. We have placed the validation to check whether the text is actually base 64 encoded or not.
How to use the tool
Using our Base64 encoder and decoder tool is simple. Just follow these steps:
- Enter the text or binary data that you want to encode or decode in the input field provided.
- Select whether you want to encode or decode the data using the appropriate button.
- The tool will automatically encode or decode the data as needed. The processed data will be displayed in the output field.
- Use the “Copy” button to easily copy the processed data to your clipboard.
Our Base64 encoder and decoder tool is designed to be simple and easy to use, but it also includes some additional features that you may find useful. For example, the tool includes a “Clear” button that allows you to easily clear the input and output fields. This can be helpful if you want to start a new encoding or decoding task.
