This tool allows you to encode and decode base 64 string.
If you want convert image to base 64, you can use our Base64 image encoder.
Short user manual:
Copy and paste, drag and drop a text file or directly type in the editors above.
To encode to base64, fill in the editor "The binary string" and it's automatically encoded.
To decode a base64-encoded text, fill in the editor "The Base64 string" and it's automatically decoded.
You can see the full user guide to help you to use this base64 converter.
To convert binary data to base 64:
To convert base 64 data: It's analogous to the binary conversion.
Base64 is a binary-to-text encoding scheme, it encodes binary data in plain text.
Base64 allows to transmit the data without loss or modification of the contents. It is useful for protocols that expect ASCII data.
Base64 represents binary data in an ASCII string format. A 65-character subset of US-ASCII is used. Each digit represents exactly 6 bits of data (2^6=64).
Base 64 Alphabet: a-zA-Z0-9+/
The extra 65th character "=" is used to signify a special processing function.
Base64 encoding is not a way of encrypting!
