To continue viewing Flash content, update to a later version of Adobe Flash Player:

  1. Click the Download Flash button. Safari opens the Adobe Flash Player page on the Adobe website.
  2. Follow the instructions on the Adobe website to download and install the latest version of the plug-in.

If you need to use an older version of Flash Player, you can use Internet plug-in management in Safari to run the plug-in in unsafe mode for websites that you trust.

Contact Adobe if you need help downloading, installing, or using Adobe Flash Player.
