What is Base64 and its usage?

Well its good to know that what is Base64 actually in first place, Base64 is method or can say technique through which binary data is converted into text or can say to ASCII (American Standard for Information Interchange).Next question arise in minds that why we need to convert binary data to ASCII? well in certain case we need this binary to ASCII conversion because some mediums only support ASCII and not allow binary for some reasons then to bypass it we encode our data to base64 so that it can be sent through this medium like email messages on MIME(Multipurpose Internet Mail Extension) and XML(Extensible Markup Language) data. Another question may raise that how data is encoded into base64? well its encoded by dividing each 3 bits of binary data into 6 bit units which results new data and this new data is than represented on a 64-radix numeral system and as 7 bit ASCII text. As each bit is divided into 2 bits, the encoded data is 33% larger in size compare to original data. Beside this base64 encoded data can not be read by humans. So it Base64 encoding can also be used for security purpose to hide data from user or send files in Base64 format instead of binary format. Base64 encoding can also be used to store images in database.

How to Decode Base64 Encoded Data?

What is Useotools Base64 Encoder tool?

Well useotools Base64 Encoder is one click tool that is designed to facilitate its user so that they can convert their files or data to base64.One question may raise in your mind that whats so special about Useotools base64 encoder, well there are a lot of other base64 encoders but most of them not work with non-English character set, our base64 encoder can encode non-English characters like Arabic, Chinese, Japanese etc.Usage of this tool is very simple just paste your data and click encode button, your data will be encoded to base64 it moment then you can copy it.
