Meet Base64 Decode and Encode, a simple online tool that does exactly what it says; decodes Base64 encoding and encodes into it quickly and easily. Base64 encode your data in a hassle-free way, or decode it into human-readable format.

Base64 encoding schemes are commonly used when there is a need to encode binary data that needs be stored and transferred over media that are designed to deal with textual data. This is to ensure that the data remains intact without modification during transport. Base64 is used commonly in a number of applications including email via MIME, and storing complex data in XML.

Easy to use

Begin with the "type (or paste) here..." area to enter your data, then hit the "encode" or "decode" buttons respectively. After a blink of any eye, the results will be shown below these buttons. Alternatively, use the "click (or tap) here..." area to select a file from your device, then hit the corresponding button. Once the upload and processing completes, you will be notified to download the resulting decoded/encoded file. That's all!

Completely free

Our tool is free to use. From now you don't have to download any software for such tasks.

Safe and secure

All communications with our servers are made through secure SSL encrypted connections (https). Uploaded files are deleted from our servers immediately after the decode or encode process, and the resulting downloadable file is deleted right after the first download attempt, or 15 minutes of inactivity. We do not keep or inspect the contents of the entered data or uploaded files in any way. Read our privacy policy below for more details.

Details of the Base64 encoding

Base64 is a generic term for a number of similar encoding schemes that encode binary data by treating it numerically and translating it into a base 64 representation. The Base64 term originates from a specific MIME content transfer encoding.
