Not so long ago, many websites consider Adobe Flash Player the foundation for flash objects and interactive videos. Nowadays, only a few sites would require Flash Player due to the introduction of HTML5 and advancements in Web technology. Moreover, the use of Flash Player has become a bad experience for many users due to security issues.
Those who still require Flash Player can download it from the official Adobe website https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/download/ to ensure installation of the latest version. If you come across an error message prompting you to stop what you are doing and install the latest version of Flash, just ignore it. Make sure that you visit only the official website to avoid fraudulent activities from hackers.
