Flash Player has a few days, but there is still a lot of content on the web that uses this Adobe technology. The only bad thing is that Adobe does not have an official Flash Player application to install from Google Play, but there are alternatives. Here we show you how easy it is to enjoy the content in Flash with Android.

Note: Flash Player is vulnerable and using it is at risk of being infected with malware. This is the reason why Google eliminated by default the possibility of playing Flash content on Android devices. Flash Player only covers Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich .
Since Flash Player 11.1 there is no official version for Android. With HTML5, Flash Player technology has not been as necessary and Adobe has stopped paying enough attention and has not patched security frequently. The main browsers such as Firefox and Chrome have it disabled by default due to their vulnerability.
Due to this lack of official support many developers have launched to cover this need, but not all with good intentions. If you have ever received an email to update to Flash Player on Android or a warning from a web page from your smartphone to install an apk with Flash Player, it was sure to be a malware.
For these cases it never hurts to have a good antivirus , since the main enemy of our system is usually ourselves.
