      Flash Player Announcement:


      Beginning August 11th, 2015 we will be updating the version of our "extended support release" to Flash Player 18 for Mac and Windows.  Flash Player 18 will replace version 13 as the extended support version that will continue to receive security updates.  For full details, please see this blog post: 


      Upcoming changes to Flash Player’s extended support release




      We recommend that you download Flash Player from our main page, but if you encounter difficulties and require the 13 release, here are direct links to the installers.



      Flash Player 13 for Internet Explorer

      Flash Player 13 for other browsers



      Flash Player 13 for supported browsers


      Please note:  By default, Flash Player's auto update system is enabled which can cause an update to occur within an hour.  To stay on the 13 release, you will need to change this update mechanism to either "Notify me to install updates" or "Never check for updates (not recommended)".  This can be done at the time of installation or later via the Flash Player control panel's Advanced tab.


      Once changed, we strongly recommend that you monitor our Flash Player announcements forum so that you can be made aware of security updates that are made available.  Please see the FAQ below for more details.


      Is there a way to be automatically notified when a new Flash Runtime release is made?
