Top Best Steps to Enable Flash in Chrome

Popular Posts

The multitude of security flaws is one of the main reasons Flash should be abandoned as soon as possible. HTML5 works better than Flash in almost all ways.

This is why Google Chrome does not come with Flash installed. Flash is now almost obsolete on the internet, but there are still many sites that aren’t up to date.

This article will show you how to enable Adobe Flash Player in Chrome. This will prevent Flash from playing automatically when websites load. It also reduces the possibility of malicious code being executed before you can stop it.

Google Chrome: Enabling Flash Player


Here’s how you enable Flash Player in Flash Player:

  1. Select Settings from the three-dot menu.
  2. Click Advanced at the bottom of the page.
  3. Click Privacy and Security to go to Site Settings.
  4. Click Flash under Permissions.
  5. Allow the setting to set the label to Ask first (recommended).
  6. Close the Settings tab. You’re done!

How to play Flash Content in Google Chrome


Flash is enabled in Chrome. To view Flash content on a webpage, you will need to click the Flash player to get it to start. If you are dealing with a lot of Flash media daily, this could become a problem. But if the site is trustworthy, it’s safe to do so.

Clicking on the button will bring up a prompt asking you if Flash is allowed or blocked for your current site. To run it, click Allow. Flash content will begin as normal after the page refreshes.

Google Chrome: Changing Flash permissions

Let’s suppose you accidentally blocked Flash content from a site. Or worse, you accidentally permitted Flash content even though you intended to block it. You can revoke Flash permissions on a Chrome site by using one of two methods.

Method 1: Use the Padlock


Here are the steps to modify Flash permissions on a single website:

  1. Flash content is available on the website.
  2. To the left of your address bar, click the padlock.
  3. For Flash, click the dropdown menu.
  4. Choose the permissions you wish to grant for your site.
  5. To refresh your site, click Reload.

Method 2: Make use of the Settings Tab


How to modify Flash permissions with Chrome Settings:

  1. Select Settings from the three-dot menu.
  2. Click the Advanced button at the bottom.
  3. Click Privacy and Security to go to Site Settings.
  4. Click Flash under Permissions.
  5. Click the trash icon in the Allow or Block sections to locate the site that you wish to modify Flash permissions.
  6. Close the Settings tab. You’re done!
