To help secure users’ systems, Adobe blocked Flash content from running in Flash Player beginning 12 January 2021.
Please note, major browser vendors have and will continue to disable Flash Player from running after the EOL Date. Major browser vendor support for Flash Player will vary by browser company. To learn the latest details, please visit the below sites hosted by these major browser vendors:
Commercial support options available
For enterprise customers that need help transitioning their Flash content to other supported technologies or require Flash Player licensing support after the EOL Date, please contact our official distribution licensing partner, HARMAN, for more information about their commercial support offerings.
HARMAN is the official enterprise distributor for Flash Player and enterprises should contact Harman to discuss Flash Player support and Flash Player security updates after the EOL Date. HARMAN has a long-standing history as a Flash partner, maintains knowledge of the Flash Player platform and ecosystem and is well-positioned to help enterprises through this transition given more than a decade of experience.
Potential services provided by HARMAN may include, but are not limited to:
- Transitioning Flash content to alternate technologies.
- Creating customised downloadable applications that will load specified Flash content for end-user distribution.
- Providing updated Flash Player installers that will allow Flash to run with compatible browsers in an internal environment.
Enterprise enablement support
Adobe strongly recommends that customers only use the most secure and up to date versions of Flash Player, which will only be supported after the EOL Date from HARMAN. However, enterprise administrators have the option to enable domain-level allow list support via Flash Player configuration files in the latest versions of Flash Player made available by Adobe only on browsers that have not disabled Flash Player. Using this option, enterprise administrators are able to specify the domains where Flash playback is allowed. Full details can be found in our Flash Player Administration guide (see ‘Enterprise Enablement’ section).
Any use of the domain-level allow list after the EOL Date is strongly discouraged, will not be supported by Adobe and is entirely at the user’s own risk.
