Adobe Flash Player End of Life Reminder

This was previously announced  in July 2017 that Adobe would stop supporting Flash Player after December 31, 2020 (“EOL Date”). In addition, to help secure users’ systems, Adobe will block Flash content from running in Flash Player, and this has taken effect since January 12, 2021.

Since Adobe no longer supports Flash Player, Adobe strongly recommends that all users immediately uninstall Flash Player to help protect their systems.
