Flash Player is EOL - End of Life. It won't get any new updates, let alone security patches. That means your PC can be at risk of getting infected with viruses or malware in the future, should hackers find a way to use any open holes in the software.It is recommended - even by Adobe themselves - to uninstall the Flash Player as soon as possible:https://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/end-of-life.html

The alternative for Flash Player is for content developers to migrate their content to some other technology as was announced over 3 years ago (https://theblog.adobe.com/adobe-flash-update/).  Some have, some are in the process, and some won't convert their content.

You can want it all you like... Flash Player is gone. The websites and games had 3 years to convert to something else, so they abandoned you: they knew this day would come.

Aamir, what is your business need for Flash? We may be able to suggest what you need to do instead. If you have a Flash based web site, you should have changed it long ago.

Thank you for information.

I am thinking about how i will be able to use stuff on internet that needs a flash player.

Do you mean it is up to Adobe or is it up to creator/owner, employees and developers of website(s)

to have something that works like a flash player.????
