Safari And Adobe Flash

Here's how to activate Flash on older versions of the browser: Open Safari, click the Safari menu at the top, and select Preferences. Go to the Websites tab. Tick the Adobe Flash Player box on the left under Plug-ins. Scroll down the list on the left until you find Adobe Flash; select, then to the right, decide whether you want behaviour on, off or ask by default & for any specific sites. Full instructions at Adobe: Enable for Safari. Note that Flash is very nearly end-of-life & most browsers are going to start actively blocking it over the next year. Steve Jobs famously criticised Flash in a 2010 open letter, and iPhones and iPads never supported the standard; Apple's Safari was the first desktop browser to drop support for Flash.

Note: Adobe Flash will no longer be supported after 2020. Microsoft plans to remove Flash from Windows entirely by the end of 2020.

Because Flash will no longer be supported after 2020, it is turned off by default in the new Microsoft Edge. Other browsers like Google Chrome, Mozilla, and Safari are also planning on removing Adobe Flash in the same timeframe.

With the release of version 14, Safari no longer supports Flash; Flash Player no longer loads and Flash content will not play in Safari 14.

In July of 2017, Adobe announced that Flash Player will no longer be supported after December 2020. Download the Adobe Flash Player uninstaller: Mac OS X, version 10.6 and later: uninstallflashplayerosx.dmg. Mac OS X, version 10.4 and 10.5: uninstallflashplayerosx.dmg. The uninstaller is downloaded to the Downloads folder of your browser by default.

For more information about the end of Flash support, see Adobe Flash end of support on December 31, 2020.
