Lots of people are not aware that they are already using the default HTML5 platform for browsing content from Google. It was not long ago when users were required to update their Flash Player in order to view or play content from the Web browser. In fact, the default media to view content from YouTube was Flash Player before the HTML5 platform was used by Google.
However, there are websites that would require Adobe Flash Player to view content. For this reason, it is important to update Flash Player from time to time. This is intended to promote the security and safety of the computer system you are using. You can visit the official website of Adobe to get to know more about Flash Player from this link https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/.
If you are not using Adobe Flash Player in your computer, you will be prompted to click on the yellow button named Install Now. The process of installation would initialize in which the installation package would be downloaded to your computer. You need to click the button named Save File in order to proceed to the next step.
You would be prompted to choose from the options to update your version of Flash Player upon getting to the installation dialog box. You are required to choose the recommended option to Allow Adobe to Install Updates. This is intended if you wish to receive prompt updates from Adobe.
Take note that Web browsers like Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome come with built-in Flash Player. Chrome, for instance, would update itself automatically at the time when newer versions of Adobe Flash Player are released. Alternatively, you can always have the option to do it yourself when checking updates because this will keep your system safe as you go online.
Adobe already released security updates for Flash Player for Linux, Chrome OS, Mac, and Windows. The updates are intended to address some critical vulnerabilities, particularly on version 188.8.131.52 or earlier.
