What is Flash and how to disable it in browsers Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari, Yandex Browser

Quick transition to disable Flash in browsers


Flash technology (Adobe Flash, formerly Macromedia Flash) was developed to create interactive websites, applications and multimedia presentations.

It's interesting that Apple did not implement this technology in iOS, because it considers it to be vulnerable, requiring large processor resources. Flash can be installed on macOS. The language of HTML 5 has a built-in set of functions for working with video and music and can in the future completely replace the technology of Flash.

The disadvantages of Adobe Flash technology

  1. Adobe Flash technology requires increased resources when working. Because of this, the processor heats up more and the computer needs more cooling. Reduces the battery life of the laptop.
  2. Many critical vulnerabilities have been found in this technology. Updates came late and Adobe Flash was considered a non-secure application.
  3. Your IP address can be detected through this technology when using multimedia requests (playing music on web sites, watching videos).

If you use anonymous VPN no logs then Flash technology can only determine the IP address of the VPN server.
