Adobe Flash Player is that plugin that allows its users to interact with sites that come with multimedia experiences, such as animation or games. You can enable it on your Mac if you have installed it and you know which version of the Safari browser you’re using. However, keep in mind that the support for Adobe Flash Player will end in 2020. The instructions work for now, but after Adobe ends the service, they won’t anymore.
Here’s how to enable Adobe Flash Player on Mac
You need to know which version of the Safari browser you’re using. When you find out, you also need to make sure that you have the Adobe Flash Player downloaded. Then you need to open Safari and click “Safari” in the top toolbar. Then, choose “Preferences.” Go to “Websites.” If you have to, you can scroll down to the plugins section in the left toolbar. Then check the box to enable the Adobe Flash Player. From there, you might also want to set it to stay on automatically, or to disable it when you visit some specific sites.
Keep in mind that if you have an earlier version of Safari, you will still have to go through Safari’s “Preferences” and enable the Flash Player. But instead of going to “Websites,” you’ll go to “Security.”
Those of you who have version 1- or newer, but still older than Safari 11 should continue from the “Websites” step, and only as listed here. If you have versions that are earlier than 10, you need to go to the “When visiting other websites” menu and choose “On” for Adobe Flash Player.
