Here's how to disable the Flash Player plug-in in Chrome

If you surf the internet with Google Chrome, you may be used to seeing the Flash plug-in crash. However, if Adobe Systems is to be believed, this crash bug is corrected thanks to the Chrome update.

This update disables Shockwave Flash by default, so it will be up to you to activate it.

Indeed, a message will appear each time you go to a web page visit that is not yet passed HTML5, the Flash alternative.

For those wishing to use Flash, its manual activation could, in the long run, end up weighing you down.

In addition, this plug-in is known for its fragile security, its slowness and its energy consumption, because it supports analytical pages.

Google strongly encourages all websites to pass HTML5 because this technology is lighter and faster. According to Google, most sites have already switched to this technology, and have noticed a gain in speed, responsiveness and even a battery saving for portable devices!

By the way: Flash has never been supported on iOS devices, and for the past few years has been removed from Android devices.

Disable Flash in Chrome

Update Chrome

Google Chrome, unlike other web browsers, has its own version of Adobe Flash Player Player integrated. So its plug-in is updated at the same time as Chrome.

To check if you are on the latest version of Chrome:

  • Open Chrome, click on 3 small dots top right.
  • Click on Help (Help), then about (About Google Chrome).

A new window opens automatically.

If an update is available, you will see the option: Update Google Chrome, click on it. Finally, click on Revive to finalize the update.

Disable all extensions

  • Open Chromium, click on 3 small dots top right.
  • Click on More tools (More tools), then extensions.
  • Or, just type about: extensions in the URL bar.

The extensions will display, uncheck them all maybe the problem of Flash came from one of them.

Update drivers

If you are still having problems, look for the drivers, which may be out of date. So check that they too are day.

Also, the crash of Flash can come from the content itself. And in this case, there is nothing you can do about it

Another internet browser

If Flash continues to crash or you no longer wish to activate it manually: simply surf with another browser!
