Flash Player End of Support in IE RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,<o:p></o:p>


    I'm looking for some specific information on the Flash Player
    End of Life.  I can find many, many articles, blogs, etc that state Adobe
    will end support for flash at the end of 2020.  I'm looking of specific
    dates and versions if known as well as any information on specifics from MS
    (IE), Google (Chrome) and Mozilla (FF) on the same.  I'm hoping I can get
    officially announcement documentation from each browser vendor and adobe
    itself.  Essentially I'm looking to know if we can continue to support an
    app written in Adobe Flex beyond the end of 2020 by using an older version of a
    browser (as a last resort) and if so which browser & version.

  • Hi mk185110,

    The official Adobe Flash end-of-life date is December 31, 2020. 

    Microsoft said that,"By the end of 2020, we will remove the ability to run Adobe Flash in Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer across all supported versions of Microsoft Windows. Users will no longer have any ability to enable or run Flash."

    It means that your app will be broken if it uses the Flash. It is better that you update your app timely so your users will not have any issues in future.
