The reason why Adobe Flash Player has no longer received support from Android devices is mainly the vulnerability issue. You might have heard about the recent scam called ransomware, which was designed to trick people into paying a certain amount of money just to get Flash Player updated.
The same issue came with desktop browsers, which has become the primary reason why it is essential to update your Adobe Flash Player. However, you shouldn’t wait until you become a victim of ransomware, because it would come when you least expected it.
Suspicious apps are all over the Web, so you are being reminded to ensure that your version of Flash Player has been updated to its latest. You can do this by doing any of these methods, including:
- The need to download it only from the Adobe Flash Player Download Center through this link https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/,
- Through the genuine installation mechanism, which you will get after installing from the Adobe Flash Player Download Center, and
- To install and update the genuine versions of the app for Linux, Chrome for Mac, Chrome OS, and Windows.
At the same time, you can get updates for the Adobe Flash Player that is installed on your Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer 11, or Windows 8.1 or 10.
You can also turn Adobe Flash Player on or off on your browser by doing the following procedures.
- Internet Explorer – just select settings and go to Manage Actions. You also need to click Toolbars > Extensions. Upon reaching this part, you have to enable Shockwave Flash Object.
- Mozilla Firefox – upon opening your Firefox browser, you need to go to Addons. You will be able to find Shockwave Flash under Plugins. Simply choose whether to enable or disable Flash as you reach the drop-down menu.
- Google Chrome – simply type the link chrome://plugins on your address bar. You need to hit Enter and search for the Plugins option down the page. A disable button will be found under the Adobe Flash Player plugin, so you have to click it.
