# Base64 validator

## World's simplest base64 tool

This online program validates base64 data. It quickly checks if the input data is valid (decodable) base64 without actually decoding it. The validation algorithm tests if all the input characters are base64 alphabet characters and whether the data and padding are of the right length. In the output, you get a green or red base64 status badge. In the case of incorrect data, the program also displays all invalid characters and their positions to the screen. Created by encoding gurus from team Browserling.

Base64 validator tool
What is a base64 validator?

This application works in your browser and it checks the correctness of the input base64 data. It doesn't decode the data but uses multiple criteria to assess the validity of the data. First of all, it checks all the characters in the input data. Correct base64 data consists only of ASCII characters that include: lowercase and uppercase English letters ("a-z" and "A-Z"), regular digits ("0-9"), symbols "+" and "/", as well as the padding symbol "=" (which may only appear at the end of the string). If the entered base64 contains any other characters, then this data is considered to be invalid. In this case, a red badge is displayed and all unknown symbols and their indexes are printed to the screen. The next base64 test is to check the length of the data. Base64 always encodes data in buckets of four symbols. For every three input bytes (24 bits), four 6-bit characters from the base64 alphabet are used (which also equal 24 bits). If the input data contains less than three bytes, then the missing bits are compensated with the padding character "=". If the data passes all these tests, then a green badge is displayed in the output. By default, the program strictly checks that the length of the text is a multiple of four, but if you activate the "Allow Missing Padding" option, then it also accepts data with missing "=" characters at the end. The input base64 can be either continuous or broken into several lines. Sometimes when copying base64 data, the application where it's copied from introduces unnecessary whitespaces. If you want to allow such whitespace characters (spaces and tabs) in the data, then activate the "Allow Whitespaces" option. Base64abulous!

Strict Base-64 Check

This example performs strict base-64 validation. It checks that the data contains only the symbols from the base-64 index table and that there are no spaces or tabs between the symbols. It also checks that the data is aligned on a four-byte boundary via the padding symbol "=". The given base-64 data successfully passes all tests and a green success badge is displayed in the status area.

**Required options**

Allow spaces and tabs in
the input base64 data.

If the base64 data length is
not a multiple of four, then by
default it's padded with the
symbol "=". Select this option
to make padding optional.

Validate a Base-64 Image

In this example, we check the validity of a base-64 string that contains an encoded PNG image. We know that it's a PNG image because it has a data URL prefix with the "image/png" MIME type. As the input base-64 contains chunks of data with many spaces, tabs, and newlines, we activate the "Allow Whitespaces" option so that all these whitespaces aren't considered an error. We also enable the "Allow Missing Padding" option because the data is missing one padding character "=" at the end. The result of the check is green, which means that this base-64 encoded PNG image is valid.

If the base64 data length is
not a multiple of four, then by
default it's padded with the
symbol "=". Select this option
to make padding optional.

Invalid Base-64

This example tests a short base-64 message and gives a negative result with a red error badge. In the testing process, it found that the message contains several characters that fall outside of the base-64 encoding alphabet. All these invalid characters are displayed to the screen together with their index positions in the message.
