JSON Unescaper

World's Simplest JSON Tool

Free online JSON unescaper. Just load your escaped JSON in the input field and it will automatically get unescaped. In the tool options, you can also enable prettifying of the output JSON and indent it using either spaces or tabs. Created for developers by developers from team Browserling.

What Is a JSON Unescaper?

This tool converts a previously escaped JSON string back to its standard format. JSON uses specific characters to denote its structure, such as double quotes (") for strings, newlines (\n) for line breaks, and tabs (\t) for indentation. However, if these characters need to be used within a string themselves, they have to be escaped. For example, the string "Hello, world!" (including surrounding quotes) in JSON would look like \"Hello, world!\". In this case, the (") character within the string is escaped by adding a backslash "\" before it. This tool reverses the escaping process by replacing all escaped characters with their original, unescaped equivalents. In addition to unescaping, the program also allows you to create neat JSON output by adding indentation to nested objects. By activating the "Prettify Output JSON" option, you can make the JSON more structured and create indentation using spaces or tabs. Json-abulous!


JSON Unescaper Examples

Click to try!

Unescape a Simple JSON Object

In this example, we unescape a simple JSON object containing two key-value pairs with escaped quotes around the keys and values. The tool removes all backslashes (\) before quotes, resulting in a usable JSON object that can be assigned to a variable.

{\"Alice\": \"London\", \"Bob\": \"Rome\"}
{"Alice": "London", "Bob": "Rome"}
Required options
These options will be used automatically if you select this example.
Format the output JSON
by adding indentation.

Unescape and Prettify JSON with Spaces

In this example, we remove the escape characters from a JSON object and also prettify the output for better readability. For the prettification, we choose to indent the JSON using spaces and specify 2 spaces per indent level.

{\"city\": \"New York\", \"population\": 8000000, \"is_capital\": false}
{ "city": "New York", "population": 8000000, "is_capital": false }
Required options
These options will be used automatically if you select this example.
Format the output JSON
by adding indentation.
Number of spaces per indent.

Unescape and Prettify JSON with Tabs

In this example, we unescape a JSON configuration string representing Lara Croft's character profile from the Tomb Raider video game. To visualize the hierarchical structure of the JSON with nested data, we enable the "Prettify Output" option and set the tab as an indentation character.

"{\"name\": \"Lara Croft\",\"profession\": \"Archaeologist\",\"skills\": [\"Acrobatics\", \"Combat\", \"Exploration\"]}"
{ "name": "Lara Croft", "profession": "Archaeologist", "skills": [ "Acrobatics", "Combat", "Exploration" ] }
Required options
These options will be used automatically if you select this example.
Format the output JSON
by adding indentation.
