 Adobe Flash Player Uninstall (12/28/2020 2:00:00 AM)

Adobe is discontinuing Flash Player and will not be providing updates or security patches beyond the December 31, 2020 end of life date. Continued use of an unsupported product poses a variety of risks. To align with modern security practices, Adobe Flash Player will be uninstalled from all UMKC owned systems.

All major web browsers (Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Microsoft Internet Explorer, etc) will be releasing updates to their products to more aggressively block Flash content. Some of these browsers offered a transition period where Flash was disabled by default, but users had the option to turn Flash back on. This option will no longer be available, and all Flash content will be blocked.

UMKC employees that create or own Flash content are encouraged to migrate to modern standards such as HTML5 or WebGL. UMKC is not responsible for third party Flash content that may be rendered unusable after the EOL date. This includes non-university websites, webapps, downloadable interactive content, and audio/video streaming platforms built on Flash.

Third party websites offering Flash Player downloads after December 31st are not authorized by Adobe and likely contain malware or other security risks. If you have constituents that need special accommodations, please contact to discuss potential options.
