Bye, Bye Flash Player

Updated: Nov 3, 2021

Adobe will stop supporting Flash Player after December 31, 2020 (“EOL Date”).

Newer and more secure standards such as HTML5, WebGL, and WebAssembly have continually matured and serve as viable Flash content alternatives. Major browser vendors (Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Brave) are dropping support for most other plug-ins (like Flash Player).

Adobe provided more than three-years’ advance notice for developers, designers, businesses, and other parties to migrate Flash content to new standards.

After the EOL Date (December 31, 2020), Adobe will not issue Flash Player updates or security patches. Therefore, Adobe will prompt users to uninstall Flash Player and strongly recommends that all users immediately uninstall Flash Player.

To help secure users’ systems, Adobe will block Flash content from running in Flash Player beginning January 12, 2021.

Major browser vendors will disable Flash Player from running after the EOL date.

When Flash Player is opened, it will automatically prompt users to uninstall it. Please do so.

The vast majority of our users have already had Flash Player removed from their computers. If you have trouble, let us know, and we can help remove it for you.
