Flash Player have been criticized for its security vulnerabilities. Adobe now show a positive attitude and determination to the public for promoting the software’s stability, enhancing security and device compatibility as well as improving performance.
To uninstall any previous versions of Flash Player, Adobe provides an uninstall tool for both Windows and Mac operating systems to help users complete the removal. You will need to download the tool and run it to perform the almost-clean uninstallation. Yet afterward you also need to delete this tool from your machine.
To run the Adobe Flash Player beta on Mac requires Mac OS X 10.9 and higher. For Mac users who want to have an all-in-one uninstaller not only for Adobe products but also for other app removal tasks, Osx Uninstaller could be a optional choice.
