Base64 Encode

Base64 is a way to encode binary to 64 ASCII string format. This encoding scheme is used when binary data needs to be stored and transferred over media.


Please Enter text to encode to Base64





Why Base64 Encoding is Required?

The dependence for Base64 encoding comes from the problems that occur subsequent to media is transmitted in raw binary format to text-based systems.

Since text-based systems (subsequent to email) add footnotes to binary data as a broad range of characters, including special command characters, much of the binary data that is transmitted to transfer media is misinterpreted by those systems and lost or corrupted in the transmission process.

One method of encoding this allowable of binary data in a pretentiousness that avoids such transmission problems is to send it as plain ASCII text in Base64 encoded format. This is one of the techniques employed by the MIME going on to all right to send data another than plain text.

Note : Once string is encoded in Base64 format, used Decode Base64 Tool to decode Base64 string.
