Adobe Flash Player to be Removed 12/11

This article applies to Managed IT partners.

In 2017, Adobe announced they were removing Adobe Flash Player from their application suite at the end of 2020. Flash has been gradually phased out of most use cases since that time and several improved, more secure options have become available.  

In preparation for the discontinuation of Flash on December 31, 2020, we will be removing the software from all OCIO-managed devices on December 11, 2020. While most people will not be impacted by this change, some faculty and staff may still be using Flash. If you are still using  Adobe Flash, please contact the IT Service Desk as soon as possible. to discuss your use case and the other options available to you .
