With the Free & Online Base64 Encode tool, you can effortlessly encode the decoded Base64 string or decode the Base64 encoded string into a human-readable format.
Base64 is simply a binary to ASCII encoding scheme. That encoding scheme is used to store and transfer the binary data over the medium, designed to deal with textual data, and does not support binary data. Such as when embedding an image into a database, CSS files, or HTML.
A base64 encoded string looks like this:
Base64 encoding scheme uses the same 64 characters that are present in the majority of character sets. Therefore, these are not used as controlled characters on the internet. So when you encode with Base64, you are confident that your data will decode at the destination without any issue.
These characters are
Bytes that formed the data are broken into 24 bits (3*8, three bytes at a time). These three bytes (24 bits) are broken into four packs of 6 bits each. Those 6 bits form a number corresponding to the index in the character set supported by the Base64 encoding scheme.
But what if the number of characters to be encoded does not come with a multiple of six bits?
Then zeros will be added to complete the last six-bit sequence.
If the number of bytes is not in numbers of three, then padding is used;
== for 1 byte and
= 2 bytes
In simple, Base64 encoding converts the three bytes of data into four base64 encoded characters.
Some major Base64 implementations are.
The Base64 encoding scheme is widely used and preferred over the other encoding schemes like HEX encoding and Decimal encoding because
To encode the data by using the Base64 encoding scheme. Perform the following steps.
Checking the results by using the sample data is beneficial. It shows you the output and removes the ambiguity that you may have related to the tool.
For using that option, do the following steps.

Note: We do not keep a copy of the resulted Base64 encoded form. Therefore, please copy the resulting Base64 encoded format, paste it to the desired location for future use if you are happy, and be satisfied with the results.
