Adobe has released the final scheduled update for its Flash Player and announced that it would start blocking Flash content from running on January 12, 2021. The company has also recommended that users uninstall Flash Player before it reaches its end of support on December 31.

Adobe first announced the retirement of its Flash Player back in July 2017. The company made that decision in partnership with Apple, Google, Facebook, Microsoft, and Mozilla.
