Adobe Flash is not the safest player out there, but there are still many people who are using it daily. We agree that big companies have already switched to HTML5, but there are still many websites that support it.

Updating Flash

Back in 2010, Google has announced that 0its Chrome web browser will automatically update to the latest Flash Player build automatically in order to create a safe experience for everyone. So, if you are using the Chrome browser, the Adobe Flash Player is most likely already updated, but if you are using any other web browser, we suggest you to keep reading.

The easiest way to get into the Settings of the Flash Player is to right-click on a Flash element on a website and click on “Settings”. Once you are there, select “Global Settings->Flash Player Settings Manager->Advanced” and make sure that you check “Install updates automatically when available”. By doing this, you will make sure that you will receive the latest Adobe Flash Player as soon as it gets released.

How To Completely Uninstall The Adobe Flash Player From Your Computer

There are users who prefer to just disable Flash from running inside their browser, but if you don’t plan on using the Adobe Flash Player, we suggest you to completely uninstall it from your computer. To do this, open the Control Panel and go to “Programs and Features”. Here you will see a list of installed applications along with any Flash plug-ins that you’ve installed on your computer. We suggest you to uninstall every plugin that’s associated with the Adobe Flash Player.

However, if you are a Mac OS X user, you will need to download the “Flash Uninstaller” from Adobe’s website, run it on your computer and follow the prompts.

Are you still using the Adobe Flash Player on your computer or do you think that this plugin is not safe and it may allow the hackers to get inside your PC?
