Flash Player

If Flash Player is updated via the download center, please ensure that the optional offers (McAfee Security Scan Plus and True Key from Intel) are not installed. In my case, however, the checkboxes were no longer checked in the browser in the last few months – Adobe seems to have changed something.

Which Flash Player version do I have?

The installed Flash version can be checked on this page. There you can see whether the Flash Player is supported in the browser (in Chrome Flash is deactivated by default).


Check Google Chrome for updates

With the Chrome browser, the update should be applied automatically. You can also check for updates manually by typing chrome://components in the address bar (works for Chrome, not for Iron).
