Adobe Flash Player EOL General Information Page


Since Adobe no longer supports Flash Player after 31 December2020 and blocked Flash content from running in Flash Player beginning 12 January2021, 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.  See below for more details on how to uninstall Flash Player.

UPDATED: 13 January2021

 

Adobe stopped supporting Flash Player beginning 31 December2020 (“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).  See Flash Player EOL announcements from Apple, Facebook, Google, Microsoft and Mozilla.

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.

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 January2021. Major browser vendors have disabled and will continue to disable Flash Player from running.

Flash Player may remain on your system unless you uninstall it.  Uninstalling Flash Player will help to secure your system since Adobe will not  issue Flash Player updates or security patches after the EOL Date.  Adobe blocked Flash content from running in Flash Player beginning 12 January2021 and the major browser vendors have disabled and will continue to disable Flash Player from running after the EOL Date.

Click “Uninstall” when prompted by Adobe or follow these manual uninstall instructions for Windows and Mac users.

Since Adobe is no longer supporting Flash Player after the EOL Date, Adobe blocked Flash content from running in Flash Player beginning 12 January2021 to help secure your system.  Flash Player may remain on your system unless you uninstall it.

Browsers and operating systems that support Flash Player continue to decrease so Adobe strongly recommends immediately uninstalling Flash Player.

Apple Safari version 14, released for macOS in September 2020, no longer loads Flash Player or runs Flash content. Please visit Apple’s Safari support for more information.
