Microsoft will removed Adobe Flash Player in January 2021
The Flash Player produced by Adobe has been with people for several generations. From the initial online Flash MV to the later web games, it is indeed the same as an old friend for those who have been online for a long time.
However, the times are progressing after all, and old friends cannot always be with us. Since Apple founder Steve Jobs issued an article that ranted that Flash was too bad, and announced that iOS would not support Flash.
In July 2017, Adobe, the owner of Flash Player, also stood up for the first time and said that it would completely abandon its technical support for Flash Player before the end of 2020. This is undoubtedly a signal to the outside world that Flash Player will die.
Since then, various mainstream browsers have begun to restrict users from using the already insecure Flash Player plug-ins in their software. When you open a small game website and want to play a childhood game, you will find that you need to open the option to allow web pages to request to run Flash in the settings and then select the option to allow Flash to run.
Today, Microsoft released another news, reiterating its commitment to remove Flash support from all its browsers (Internet Explorer 11 and Edge and Chromium Edge browsers) by January 2021.
After December 2020, you will no longer receive “Security Update for Adobe Flash Player” from Microsoft that applies to Microsoft Edge Legacy and Internet Explorer 11. Beginning in January 2021, Adobe Flash Player will be disabled by default and all versions older than KB4561600 released in June 2020 will be blocked. Downloadable resources related to Adobe Flash Player that are hosted on Microsoft websites will no longer be available.
