Free Base64 encoder / decoder

Base64 encoder / decoder

Encode and decode any data from and to Base64.

What is Base64

In programming, is a group of binary-to-text encoding schemes that represent binary data (more specifically, a sequence of 8-bit bytes) in an ASCII string format by translating the data into a radix-64 representation. The term originates from a specific MIME content transfer encoding. Each non-final Base64 digit represents exactly 6 bits of data. Three 8-bit bytes (i.e., a total of 24 bits) can therefore be represented by four 6-bit Base64 digits.

How it works

The application receives the input data and then processes it either on the server or on the client side. Where the data will be processed depends whether the “Privacy mode” checkbox is checked or not.

If the data is processed on the client side, the browser will execute the encoding / decoding JavaScript? functions and display the results in the corresponding textarea.

If the data is processed on the server side, the sever will execute the encoding / decoding PHP? functions and display the results in the corresponding textarea.

What is stored

At the moment, nothing is stored. But in the future we may store the encoded and decoded data, and also their hashes as a way to improve this application and maybe even develop new applications utilizing the stored data.
