Base64 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. Base64 encoding schemes are commonly used when there is a need to encode binary data, especially when that data needs to be stored and transferred over media that are designed to deal with text.
I've created this Base64 Encoder and Decoder tool to make it easier to encode and decode Base64 strings. You can encode and decode Base64 strings by typing or pasting the text into the text areas below.
The tool uses the atob and btoa functions to encode and decode Base64 strings.
