Here’s How to Enable Adobe Flash Player in Your Safari Browser

Adobe Flash Player has become known for its numerous security faults, which is why many people are now wary of using this web client. Unfortunately, a lot of websites still use Flash Player to display their content so, if you really need to browse through these sites, you’ll have no choice but to use Flash Player as well.

If you’ve disabled Adobe Flash Player in your Safari browser, you’ll need to enable it again to view Flash-supported web content. This is also true if you’re using macOS Sierra, which disables Flash Player by default. Fortunately, enabling this program in Safari isn’t that difficult since you can easily do it by taking a few steps. Before you start, though, you first have to determine the version of Safari that you’re using as well as the Mac OS version that’s on your computer.
