Hi, 

My university uses Flash Player for all our online lectures. I understand that Google Chrome has Flash Player pre-installed, but how can I uninstall it off of Google Chrome? I am blocked out of all my lectures with the notification "Adobe Flash Player is out of date" and "Adobe Flash Player is blocked because it is out of date." If I follow the links to uninstall it for Chrome, it just tells me to "Install Flash Player" even though it expired December 31, 2021. 

Please help!

Contact the school and ask them what your options are now that Flash Player is officially dead.  Your uni had 3-1/2 years advanced notice that Flash Player was ending on Dec 31st,  more than ample time to get alternative content ready. https://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/end-of-life.html

I work for a university in Sydney, Australia. There has been an effort over the last year to convert any content that was based on Flash. Some people, including where I work, do leave things late and may not have realised what was involved. 

I'd expect universities to be aware of Flash no longer being supported and so have an alternate solution for anything like the online lectures. Ask your lecturer. If there is an IT department or some other technical support available at your university, you could contact them.
