What is Escape?

Escape is the process of transforming special characters into their escaped form in JavaScript. This is required because some characters in JavaScript have specific meaning and, if not escaped, can cause issues. The backslash character, for example, is used to escape other characters, so if you wish to use one in your JavaScript code, you must escape it by preceding it with another backslash.

What is Unescape?

The process of reverting escaped characters to their original form is known as unescape. This is required when displaying escaped characters in a web page. If you have a string that contains an escaped backslash, for example, you must unescape it before showing it in the web page.
