Facts about Flash Deactivation

Adobe will discontinue development and support of Adobe Flash by 2020. Since iPhones and iPads in particular do not use Flash, other technologies have been replacing Flash for a long time to enable web content, especially in mobile applications.

By default, newer versions of all browsers no longer support Flash. Users must actively confirm playback of Flash items by clicking buttons such as the following:

Adobe Flash Player Activation
Adobe Flash Player Activation

This can be a significant drawback for sites using Flash, so administrators should take action immediately. As a 1&1 customer, if you still use Flash intros with 1&1 Website Builder or 1&1 Website Creator, for example, we recommend that you disable the Flash intro directly in your application.
