Base64 Decoder

Base64 Decoder

Base64 is a binary-to-text encoding scheme that represents binary data in 64-digit numbers of alphanumeric characters (A-Z, a-z, 0-9) with special symbols (including + / =). This encoding is important when data is to be stored and transferred through a media or channel. The data sent remains unchanged during transmission.

Once the data is received, it is decoded from the base64 encoded string to the original string. In this way the probability of losing data becomes almost zero. Below is an example for your understanding of how base64 decoder works.

Do you know? 😲 - Base64 encoded data takes up ~33% more space/size than the original data. Then why we use it?

Advantages of Base64 encoding is more important than its disadvantage (given above). Its widely used for many purposes sucsh as email attatchments, storing complex data in JSON/XML, rendering images/files on HTML or CSS.

Features / Advantages

  1. Change Charsets - We uses UTF-8 as default character set for decoding data. If you want to decode your string with different character set, change the charset input to your desired type. This will help you decode base64-encoded text.
  2. Load URL - You can easily load the content of a web address. You only need to enter the URL and wait till we fetch the site content.
    Note:- To convert base64 to image use Base64 to Image.
  3. Live Mode - We also provide you live mode feature to decode your string live on your computer (using built-in JS on the browser) without processing it on our server.
    Note:- We only support UTF-8 charset on live mode. To decode data on other characterset turn off live mode.
To decode your base64 string, enter your base64 encoded string in the input field. Then press generate button if live mode is off.
