How to Enable Adobe Flash Player on Chrome Browser

Adobe Flash player was the most used plugin of all the times. It was required to all the sites to play the audio/video contents on most sites. It would not be surprising that until 2015, YouTube required its viewers to install the Flash player, due to some security issues. Many websites started looking for an alternative which unfortunately was not present. But it does not mean that you would need the Flash Plugin anymore.

Word of Caution:

Adobe Flash player was refrained from use due to security issues. While some prohibited its use altogether, others kept the Flash Player Plugin disabled by default. I suggest that you enable Flash Player only when it is of utmost necessity to view some unavoidable content on a website.
In this tutorial, we’ll walk through the steps you need to follow to enable Flash Player in Chrome.

Enable Flash Player for a Specific Website

First of all, open the website for which you want to enable the Flash Player. On the left side of the Address, bar click on the gray Lock.
Click on Gray Lock

Next click on the Ask default option. The drop-down menu appears and clicks the Allow button to allow the website to use Flash Player.
Choose Allow
