What is Flash?

Do I need to install Flash?

Due to the rise of new web technologies (such as HTML5 and more advanced JavaScript) as well as iPhone & iPad not supporting Flash, fewer and fewer companies and software developers are using Flash, so the need to have Flash installed on your computer is declining.

Some sites still use Flash for parts of their website; so if you really need to use those features, then you need to install Flash!

However there have been a number of serious security problems found in Flash in the last few years, so as a result a lot of security-conscious users have been recommending: don't install Flash unless you specifically need it.

And most importantly; if you do install Flash: Make sure you keep it up to date! This will help you stay safe and secure on the internet.
