Adobe Flash Player used to be one of the most used applications, as many companies were using it to stream their ads on websites. The Adobe Flash Player is used to stream video and audio, but also to execute rich internet applications.
However, the developers are now trying to favor other plugins and software, which come without bugs and security issues. The reason why Adobe Flash Player is left behind is because the application comes with many security issues, which allowed hackers to gain access to computers or to steal data. YouTube and other big companies have already ditched the Flash Player for HTML5, and it is just a matter of time until more companies will follow them.
Anyway, before Flash Player dies for good, we suggest you to keep it updated, as Adobe has started to release updates for it very often. The latest Adobe update has been released on April 7, 2016 and it fixes many critical vulnerabilities that have been detected in the Flash Player version 188.8.131.52 (and earlier) versions.
How To Allow Adobe To Automatically Install Flash Player Updates
In order to make sure that you have the latest Flash Player on your computer, you will need to allow Adobe to automatically install the latest updates on your computer. First of all, you will need to head to the official Adobe website (adobe.com) and check if you have the latest Flash Player version.
If you don’t have the latest Adobe Flash Player version, we suggest you to download it from there. Once you’ve downloaded the file to your computer, run it and at the first prompt we suggest you to use the recommended option, which is: “Allow Adobe to install updates”. By selecting this, you will make sure that in the future Adobe will automatically install the latest Flash Player on your computer once it is released.
After that, just follow the prompts in order to install the latest Adobe Flash Player version on your computer.
