This is Base64 encoding, defined in RFC 4648. It's a very common encoding.

You can decode it online on many sites, but your string doesn't seem to be something humanly-readable.

  • @JonathanGray: it doesn't seem to be a PNG image since it doesn't have a PNG header, why do you think it could be one? – Benoit Esnard Jan 17 '16 at 2:49
  • @JonathanGray: that's just a placeholder used by Chromium. Try this URL for example: data:image/png;base64,security – Benoit Esnard Jan 17 '16 at 2:52
  • LOL that totally made me think it was an image file... Wow. Back to the drawing board hahaha – Jonathan Gray Jan 17 '16 at 2:53
  • @JonathanGray: Haha, I was tricked too. :P – Benoit Esnard Jan 17 '16 at 2:56
