Adobe Flash Player End of Life

Since Adobe no longer supports Flash Player after 31 December 2020 and blocked Flash content from running in Flash Player beginning 12 January 2021, Adobe strongly recommends all users immediately uninstall Flash Player to help protect their systems.  

Some users may continue to see reminders from Adobe to uninstall Flash Player from their system. 

Adobe stopped supporting Flash Player beginning 31 December 2020 (“EOL Date”), as previously announced in July 2017. Open standards such as HTML5, WebGL and WebAssembly have continually matured over the years and serve as viable alternatives for Flash content. Also, major browser vendors are integrating these open standards into their browsers and deprecating most other plug-ins (like Flash Player). By providing more than three years’ advance notice, Adobe believes that there has been sufficient time for developers, designers, businesses and other parties to migrate Flash content to new standards. The EOL timing was in co-ordination with some of the major browser vendors.

Adobe will not issue Flash Player updates or security patches after the EOL Date. Adobe strongly recommends uninstalling Flash Player immediately.

After the EOL Date, Adobe will not issue Flash Player updates or security patches. Adobe strongly recommends immediately uninstalling Flash Player. To help secure your system, Adobe blocked Flash content from running in Flash Player beginning 12 January 2021. Major browser vendors have disabled and will continue to disable Flash Player from running.
