Install Flash Player On Your Android Device

By on October 11, 2014

As you already know that few months earlier, Google decided to leave Adobe Flash Player in favor of HTML 5. Certainly this is a good thing in many aspects but there are still some people who want to get Adobe Flash Player installed on their Android devices. Unfortunately, you won’t find Adobe Flash Player on Google Play Store. So, there is no way to officially install Adobe Flash Player on your Android phone or tablet. Luckily, there is a way to install Adobe Flash Player and you can enjoy flash sites on your device.

First of all, you have to get the compatible version of Adobe Flash Player. Unlike Google Play Store, Adobe does allow users to download Adobe Flash Player from their websites. Go to Adobe Flash Player site from your desktop PC or from device itself. Navigate to Adobe Flash Player archive section and then select compatible version of Adobe Flash Player. Make sure you download the latest version of Adobe Flash Player. Now download the file from device itself, or download it from PC and then transfer to Android phone or tablet.

You must have an explorer app in order to install this downloaded Adobe Flash Player. Most of Android devices come with a pre installed explorer. But if you don’t have one then you can download ES File Explorer from Google Play Store. Explorer allows installing 3rd party apps directly from their installation files. Before you install Adobe Flash Player on your device, make sure your device allows installing apps from 3rd party sources. Go to settings >> security >> and then enable “Allow Unknown Sources” or something like that.

Now go to your native explorer app or ES File Explorer and then install Adobe Flash Player you just downloaded. Installation is real easy and quick. Simply tap on the file and your device will ask you to install it. Your device will take few seconds to install Adobe Flash Player successfully. If it fails, then check whether you have downloaded compatible Adobe Flash Player file or not. One thing you must know is Google Chrome and native browser (even if Chrome is native browser) does not support Adobe Flash Player. So you have to download and install another browser like Firefox.

You can download Adobe Flash Player from other sources as well, but always download Adobe Flash Player from Adobe official website. After installing Adobe Flash Player on your device, disable “Allow Unknown Sources” option from settings >> security. Now, Adobe Flash Player is installed on your device and you can enjoy flash sites.
