What is Base64 Encode?
Base64 Encode is an interactive Base64 encoding tool that helps you convert an input string into a Base64-encoded string.
Base64 literally means - a positional numbering system with base 64. Here 64 is the number of characters in the coding alphabet from which the final alphanumeric text based on the Latin alphabet is formed. The number corresponds to the highest degree of two (26) that can be represented using printable ASCII characters. This system is widely used in e-mail to represent binary files in the text of an e-mail (transport coding). All commonly known variants, known as Base64, use the characters A-Z, a-z and 0-9, which is 62 characters; different systems use different characters for the missing two characters.
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.
Why use Base64 Encoder/Decoder?
The Base64 Decoder Encoder is generally used when there is a need to encode or decode binary information.
The result data will further need to be stored and transferred over the media that is created to deal with the textual information.
How to use it?
Just paste your text and click on "Encode".
