URL Decoder

A free online tool to convert the encoded URL string into its standard format

What is URL decoding?

URL decoding is the process of translating encoded characters in a URL to their actual representations. When you browse the internet, URLs often include symbols like “%20” for space or “%2F” for a forward slash. Decoding these symbols reveals the intended readable format.

Why URL Decoder Required?

Web applications encode URLs to ensure data integrity and security during transmission. However, for users and developers, understanding the content of encoded URLs becomes important. This is particularly relevant when sharing links, debugging, or analyzing web interactions.

How Does the URL Decoder Work?

  • Input URL: Paste the encoded URL into the URL Decoder tool.
  • Decode: Click on the “Decode” button to initiate the decoding process..
  • Result: The tool will display the decoded URL, making special characters readable.

URL Decode Example

  • Encoded URL: https%3A%2F%2Fwww.example.com%2Fpage%3Fid%3D123
  • Decoded URL: https://www.example.com/page?id=123
  • Encoded URL: https%3A%2F%2Fwww.example.com%2Fpage%3Fid%3D123
  • Decoded URL: https://www.example.com/page?id=123

Who can Use this URL Decoder Tool?

Developers can utilize the URL Decoder to understand encoded URLs and debug their applications effectively.

Testers can use the tool to verify encoded URLs, ensuring accurate interactions in their testing environments.

Using this URL Decoder Tool with Testing
