Adobe is ending Flash support in 2020

Adobe, a world leader in overlooking critical security flaws in its own products, has announced that it will end support for Flash in 2020...roughly five years after everyone else.

Given this progress, and in collaboration with several of our technology partners – including Apple, Facebook, Google, Microsoft and Mozilla – Adobe is planning to end-of-life Flash. Specifically, we will stop updating and distributing the Flash Player at the end of 2020 and encourage content creators to migrate any existing Flash content to these new open formats.
