NOTE that, contrary to rumors, Adobe Flash will stop working entirely and forever as of the stroke of midnight, December 31, 2020. It will literally stop dead. READ: https://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/end-of-life.html

Why is this software still in the top 10 of "popular" apps? No one should have Flash installed on their mac in 2020. If you happen to have it installed, here are the uninstall instructions with uninstaller: https://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/uninstall-flash-player-mac-os.html

The download is regular Adobe Flash, not the Pepper Flash Player. And it is the same version similarly misidentified a few days or a week ago, so it is not a fresh update.

Why on God's Earth would anyone install anything to do with Adobe Flash? There are so many security issues arising from poor/sloppy coding that Adobe has put more energy into fixing its original garbage than it did into the original product. Yes, some legacy sites require Flash but the trade off is decreased security on your Mac. Install/use at your own risk! I deleted all vestiges of Flash a long time ago and am almost weaned off Adobe software from my multiple macs. Zero stars if I could for Adobe attention to detail.

No standalone NPAPI posted yet at Adobe's site. You'll have to use the installer stub.

Although Adobe advertises the system requirements for Flash 31.0.0.108 as "Mac OS X v10.10 or later," the installer completes normally when executed on a system running OS X 10.7.5 and Adobe's about page behaves normally and indicates that version 31.0.0.108 is installed.

Was finally able to uninstall Flash and AIR from the mac today. The sites I needed it for finally have updated to not need flash. If I still need flash I have chrome installed for a self contained version.

The only reason I still keep a copy of Flash player installed are for the media management sites such as VUDU, and other vendors that haven't updated their sites.

The issue with many of these sites is, They require flash to watch content from a computer. Buying or renting content can be done without flash, and of course viewing content on a streaming player such as ROKU / Apple TV, or even tablet or phone (iPad, iPhone, etc) doesn't require flash. Most of the sites i needed flash for have changed over now. So it's just as needed at this point.

Seeing as MacUpdate is frequently LATE offering Flash updates, keep this in mind: -> Adobe provides updates for all its software on the Second Tuesday of the month (just like Microsoft). Because Flash is so poorly coded, Adobe frequently provides interim updates as well during any month. IOW: Check the Adobe home page frequently for updates if you use their software, especially awful Flash. The DEATH DATE for Flash is midnight, December 31, 2020. It can't come soon enough. Party at my place.

It's useless making a proper review of Flash, by now, so here's my comment... ;-)
At the beginning of 2017, I uninstalled Flash NPAPI and switched to PPAPI so that I could fire a secondary Chromium browser when needed — my main one being Firefox — and that would be an advice I'd still give to anyone using a site that needs Flash.
But on my side, even the rare sites I use that were still needing Flash a few months ago have now abandoned it.
So a few weeks ago I also uninstalled the PPAPI version, installed VLC plugin, just in case (I'm not even sure it's of any use...), and all is freewheelin'. :-)
I've never had any issue with Flash, so I won't blame it for anything — and before html5 came out of the wood, it was mandatory —, but it's simply useless now, for the vast majority of websites.
It's the haaaard law of software: essential ones (such as Stuffit and many others) end up obsolete and useless.

I don't know what all the whining's about - I haven't had problems with Flash in a long time! I'm talking a couple years or so.

Maybe that's at least partially due to all the junk blockers I use.
The player plays what it's supposed to, and I don't see most of what I don't want to.

Even today the Inet's almost unusable without it for most folks.

Yes, there are the occasional malware sites that urge me to update my flash player immediately (or some other BS), but that's not Adobe's fault.

It's actually Javascript that's allowing those popups/popunders, not Flash.

I visit a lot of suspect and known malware sites, yet I've never had a virus or even malware installed that I can recall - maybe a rogue Safari extension secretly installed once, I think.

And I don't have any antivirus protection installed, but I do run diagnostic and scanning utilities like EtreCheck, MacScan and Malwarebytes occasionally.

NOTE: Today, Adobe rushed out an update to Flash v26. The new version is now v26.0.0.131. Be sure to update, if you still bother with Flash. (Uninstall Flash if you don't use it as it is the #1 Mac vector of security exploits!) At the moment there is no accompanying Security Bulletin. If one appears, I'll note it below.

DELETE FLASH – Download the uninstaller and remove this dangerous malware vector. No thoughtful computer user needs Flash – if a website or service requires it – tell them to migrate to HTML-5 which is far more secure and efficient.

As much as I'm tired of flash. HTML5 has gotten to point that I hate it even more. Flash videos can still be controlled. The video doesn't auto play it doesn't even load until you allow flash plugin to load. HTML5 videos these days are some of most intrusive things i've ever seen in my life and they cannot be controlled at all in most browsers. Some browsers like chrome have extensions that can sort of "block html5 media" but not always precise. Disabling auto play in browser settings doesn't always work if player doesn't honor it, and besides even with auto play disabled some crappy website can still be eating up your data with some HD video loading you didn't ask it to load. All around, the old me wanted to see flash die and now I hope they hang on as long as possible and keep a lot of these invasive videos on flash as long as possible.

Direct download of any other version (PPAPI, for example): https://www.adobe.com/support/flashplayer/debug_downloads.html — if like me you prefer downloading the full installer, not the usual tiny one that forces you to redownload it any time you want to install on another computer. ;-)

Until today I thought I could not get rid of Flash because of a few video websites that were getting stuck when using ClickToFlash on Safari, showing they had not implemented html5 yet... I've just decided to try and uninstall it anyway and to my big surprise, those sites loaded their proprietary non-Flash player instead! So, yes it's possible to live without Flash! :-D Just in case, I installed the PPAPI version of Flash, so if I happen to find a site that really needs it, I have just to fire Opera or Vivaldi, while Safari and Firefox remain clean. ;-)

It took me a long time to finally dump Flash and everything to do with it. I was actually pleasantly surprised when I found that nothing I do now really misses that junk and my Mac runs SO MUCH BETTER now. Only wish I had done it far sooner.

Now that Chromium is no longer packaged with the latest Pepper Flash plugin (PPAPI), you can download the pepper flash downloader from here: https://fpdownload.adobe.com/pub/flashplayer/latest/help/install_flash_player_osx_ppapi.dmg This is not the plugin itself, but when run will download the latest PPAPI (Pepper flash) plug in. You can install in a virtual machine or use Pacifist to extract the actual plug file then copy to /Library/Internet Plug-Ins/PepperFlashPlayer.

I believe Adobe was sending mixed messages, but it appears that they may have intended for 22.0.0.209 to be final version supported on systems running Mac OS X 10.6-10.8. That said, I've found that version 23.0.0.207, which they clearly state is supported on systems running Mac OS X 10.9 - macOS 10.12, installed and seems to work fine on a system running Mac OS X 10.7.5.

I wonder how many people complaining here about how 'dangerous' Flash is have actually been hacked/malwared through a vulnerability in it? Um....none? I would think it's an extremely rare occurrence on the Mac.

Apple rid themselves of Flash for performance reasons as early iPhones couldn't handle the CPU load , rather than as is asserted here, some holy crusade to save the world from obscure buffer overflows and the like.

Flash is/was a brilliant and accessible platform for writing 2d games, afaik there is no serious replacement for it to this day.

Yes, Flash has its faults, it slows down web pages and gobbles CPU, but since Flash has gone out of fashion, sites have become more and more bloated with massive javascript, millions more ads, opt in overlays, and pointless videos anyway. So I doubt the web has got magically faster or 'better' in that time.

The only reason this is on my computer is because of the games my wife plays on Facebook. Under my long in, I use the 'ClickToFlash' extension for Safari. It does a very good job of blocking all flash content.
