Adobe Flash Player Retirement

On Thursday, December 31, 2020, Adobe Flash Player will no longer be distributed, supported, or updated by Adobe. By the end of 2020, no major browsers are expected to continue supporting Flash or its content.

If you have Flash Player Plugin installed on a university owned device, it will automatically be removed on 12/31/2020. It is highly recommended that you uninstall Flash on any and all personal devices before December 31, as well.

If you would like to learn more about Adobe’s plan to sunset Flash Player, visit their EOL (End of Life) General Information Page. Visit Adobe’s website for instructions on how to uninstall Flash Player on both personal Windows and Mac OS devices.

If you believe that you require Flash Player to access a webpage or resource that is required for university business, or have any issues uninstalling Flash, please call the UWM Help Desk at 414-229-4040 or visit
