URL Decode

What is URL Decode tool?

The URL Decode tool decodes the encoded URL into a human-readable format or encode the decoded URL. This online tool works by taking a URL encoded string and converting it into a regular URL string by decoding special characters.

It is useful when you have a body of text, including URLs, with encoded characters and you want to see what it looks like as plain text.

A Uniform Resource Locator (URL), colloquially termed a web address, is a reference to a web resource that specifies its location on a computer network and a mechanism for retrieving it. A URL is a specific type of Uniform Resource Identifier (URI), although many people use the two terms interchangeably. URLs occur most commonly to reference web pages (http) but are also used for file transfer (ftp), email (mailto), database access (JDBC), and many other applications.

URL decoding is the reverse operation of the URL encoding process.

URL decoding is nothing but merely converting the encoded URL string into its standard or readable form. It replaces a set of percent (%) and hexadecimal values (that are done for the encoding process) to convert it into standard or regular representation.
