Introduction to the Archive Extractor online tool

Our online archive extractors allow you to extract and save the content of compressed archives directly from your browser. Our online archive openers are unique: they don’t need to transfer your archives to a remote server in order to extract them, the decompression and extraction is done by the browser itself! Check out the “No data transfers” section below to learn more.

The other online archive extractors typically send your archives to a server in order to extract them and then the extracted files are downloaded back to your computer. This means that in comparison to other archive openers our archive extractors are fast, economical on data transfers, and anonymous (your privacy is totally protected since your archive files are not transferred over the internet).

You can extract the content of an unlimited amount of archives without having to install any software, without having to sign up, and without having to transfer your files. The following file extensions are supported: rar, 7z, apk, zip, zipx, tar, bz2, gz, xz, jar, war, cab, bzip2, gzip, tar.bz2, tgz, tar.gz, tar.xz.

We hope you enjoy this tool!

Privacy Protected

We develop secure online tools that are cloud-based or that execute locally on your device. Protecting your privacy is one of our main concerns when developing our tools.

Our online tools which execute locally on your device don't need to send your data (your files, your audio or video data, etc.) over the internet. All the work is done locally by the browser itself, making these tools very fast and secure. To achieve this we use HTML5 and WebAssembly, a form of code that is run by the browser itself allowing our tools to execute at near-native speed.

We work hard to make our tools run locally on your device since avoiding sending data over the internet is more secure. Sometimes however this is not optimal or possible for tools which for example require high processing power, display maps aware of your current location, or allow you to share data.

Our cloud-based online tools use HTTPS to encrypt your data sent to and downloaded from our cloud infrastructure, and only you have access to your data (unless you have chosen to share it). This makes our cloud-based tools very secure.
