Base64 Encoding is used to represent binary data in as ASCII string format. The following will take a string and either encrypt into a Base64 string or decrypt from a Base64 string.

It can also be used for very simple encryption. Never use it for data that needs to stay private.

public static string EncryptBase64(string value) { string result = ""; try { if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(value)) { byte[] bytes = System.Text.UnicodeEncoding.UTF8.GetBytes(value); result = Convert.ToBase64String(bytes); } } catch{} return result; } public static string DecryptBase64(string value) { string result = ""; try { byte[] bytes = Convert.FromBase64String(value); result = System.Text.Encoding.UTF8.GetString(bytes); } catch{} return result; }
