Title: FLASH
Post by: Robert1190 on December 13, 2019, 03:44:31 PM
My Avast browser when it comes up has a message at the top that says.   Flash will no longer be used after Dec 2020..  ok that's a year from now.. then there is a box that says "Turn off"  does that mean turn off this message or turn off Flash..  If I turned off flash and then go to certain pages .. it will tell me that flash is needed for you to view this page would you like to install now.

Flash is pretty much obsolete now days, it's usually disabled by default in most modern browsers.

Once disabled or removed you shouldn't see any sites requesting it anymore, I've not seen any flash requests for years and are able to view/watch everything I come across.

The "Turn Off" box is to disable Flash.
