If the version of Adobe Flash plug-in that you are using is out of date, you may see the message, “Blocked plug-in,” “Flash Security Alert” or “Flash out-of-date” when attempting to view Flash content in Safari.
Clicking the indicator displays an alert, “Adobe Flash Player is out-of-date.”
In order to use Adobe Flash you need to update to a later version:
- Click the Download Flash button. Safari opens the Adobe Flash Player installer page on the Adobe website.
- Click the “Download now” button on the Adobe website to download the latest Adobe Flash Player installer.
- After the download completes, open the downloaded disk image (usually located in your Downloads folder), if it doesn't open automatically.
- In the window that appears, open the installer and follow the onscreen instructions.
Note: If you need to run an older version of Flash, you can use web plug-in management to re-enable it for specific websites using "Run in Unsafe Mode" in Safari 6.1 or later.
