Base64 is a set of binary-to-text encoding schemes that represent binary data using an ASCII string, converting it to a radix-64 representation. The term Base64 is derived from a specific MIME content transfer encoding system.

The Base64 encoding scheme is typically used when binary data needs to be encoded for storage and transmission over media designed to handle text data. This is to ensure that the data remains intact during the transfer. Base64 is commonly used in many applications, including writing email via MIME and storing complex data in XML.

With our online tool you can encode and decode your texts, the conversion happens in your browser and does not travel to any server to be processed so you can be calm about your data.
