Are you having trouble getting Flash to work on Safari? Don’t worry, you’re not alone! Safari has recently made some changes that make it difficult to enable Flash, but we’ve got you covered. In this blog post, we’ll cover how to enable Flash in Safari, so you can continue using the web-based applications and games that require it.

First off, it’s important to understand why Apple made these changes. As the use of Flash has decreased significantly over the years due to newer technologies and security risks associated with it, Apple chose to disable Flash by default in their latest version of Safari. This ensures that users have a safer browsing experience and also protects them from potential security threats associated with Flash.

However, there are still some websites that require Adobe’s Flash Player in order for them to work correctly. If you need access to one of these sites and are unable to do so because of Safari’s default settings then don’t worry – there is a way for you to enable Flash on your device. Here’s what you need to do:

1) Open the three-dot menu located at the top right corner of your browser window and select Settings.
2) Scroll down until you see Advanced and click on it.
3) Under Privacy & Security, click Site Settings.
4) Under Permissions, click on Flash.
5) Select Allow sites to run flash from the dropdown menu located under Status.
6) Refresh your browser window by clicking the circle icon at the top left corner or pressing Command+R (or Control+R if using Windows).
7) You should now be able to access any website that requires Adobe Flash Player with no issues!

We hope this blog post has been helpful in guiding you through enabling Adobe’s Flash Player in Safari. Be sure to keep an eye out for any updates from Apple regarding this issue as they may choose to change their default settings again in the future. For now, though, enjoy being able to access sites that require Adobe’s Flash Player!

How To Enable Flash On Safari 1

Enabling Flash on a Browser

Method 1: Use the Flash Icon Look for the Flash icon in the address bar. It looks like a lego block with a lightning bolt running through it. Click on it and select Allow or Always Allow on this site. This will enable Flash for that specific website.
Method 2: Use the Settings Tab Open the three-dot menu and select Settings. Scroll to the bottom and click Advanced. Under Privacy and Security, click Site Settings. Under Permissions, click Flash, then toggle Ask First (recommended) or Block to On or Allow respectively. This will enable Flash for all sites you visit, so you won’t have to do this again every time you visit a new site with Flash content.

Enabling Flash: Is It Still Possible?

Yes, it is still possible to enable Flash in a web browser. However, due to the fact that many modern browsers no longer support Flash, you must use an older version of a browser and manually disable auto-updates. It is important to remember that doing this may put your device at risk of security vulnerabilities, so caution is advised. Additionally, using an outdated version of a browser can cause instability and may not work with certain web pages or applications. As such, it is best to only use an older version of a browser for accessing Flash content.
