Flash glitches still represent a major threat for OS X, Windows and more. According to Adobe, the entire Flash concept will be rebranded as Adobe Animate. Unfortunately, some Mac users might still require the Flash tool, so if this is the case, read on to find out what you can do to ward off any future security glitches and vulnerabilities.
Make sure you have the newest Adobe Flash version installed on your Mac, before proceeding. If you don’t, download it from the Adobe Flash Player site. Note: if you have more than one browser on your Mac, we advise you to set-up the DMG Installer first.
Instructions for setting-up the DMG Installer:
- Right beneath Mac OS X, click Download Installer DMG and save it in a folder.
- Double-tap the Flash DMG in order to initiate the installation process.
- When you see OS X Gatekeeper appears, tap Open.
- Run the DGM installer and type a passcode.
