Adobe Flash Player – end of an era


Adobe Flash Player has been one of the most popular ways for people to view videos, animations and play games online – but you may have run into a few issues with it recently…

Have you been having problems with Adobe Flash Player on your website? Are you no longer able to view content on other websites? We’ve had many enquiries from clients about Adobe Flash Player being broken or how to enable Adobe Flash Player. Sadly, the bad news is that the tool has now reached the end of its life. Read on to find out more… 

January 1st 2021 marked the day Adobe Flash Player will no longer be supported – meaning the end of this life-long web content tool. Adobe Flash Player content has been blocked since January 12th, and no further updates or security patches will be issued to secure users’ systems.

Major web browsers, including Apple, Facebook, Google, Microsoft and Mozilla, have begun to disable the Flash Player plug-in by default. Most of these browsers are also planning to stop loading Adobe Flash content.  

We recommend that you uninstall Adobe Flash Player from your computers and mobile devices, and then update your web browsers to the latest versions that will disable the default use of Adobe Flash Player plug-in.
