You can safely uninstall Adobe Flash

Postby Stardust (186190305) » Wed Jan 13, 2021 6:35 am

...from your laptop or computer. I just did, using the Flash Uninstaller that kept popping up on my computer, urging me to uninstall Flash :grr

After uninstalling Flash completely from my computer, I RESTARTED it, and then went to Adobe.com to check if I still had Flash on my computer. Adobe said no, I did not have Flash on my computer, or it was disabled. Here is the URL. Click the "Check Now" button.
https://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player.html

Then I launched YoWorld desktop app to check, and it works as usual :thumbsup: Nothing changed. After that, I used all browsers on my computer (Firefox, Google Chrome, Brave and Vivaldi) to stream YoWorld, and YoWorld still streams smoothly as well on all those browsers :thumbsup:

With this post, I just want to tell everyone that you can uninstall Adobe Flash from your computer and that YoWorld will still work, because I noticed that several people asked about it.

Note/Warning: You might be playing other Flash games, so please consider that as well before uninstalling Flash from your computer.

Last but not least, thank you BVG, for letting us continue playing YoWorld despite Adobe Flash being dead as of today. I hope the HTML5 version of YoWorld will run smoothly as well, both for desktop users and also for mobile users.

Adobe did not specify the exact time, just the date which is Jan 12th or today. They said they would block all Flash players from running any Flash contents.

Lol. Don’t worry, you will be fine. YoWorld is not going away anywhere even if Flash went away. At my place, it’s already less than two hours away from the 14th.

It is safer to uninstall it because it is practically useless now, and you'd be leaving a vulnerable tool in term of security, in your computer. Of course you can opt to just disable it on all your browsers, but it is still risky. That's why Apple dumped it a long time ago, followed by Google, and finally Adobe themselves.
