Adobe has decided to shut-down support for their Flash player. They will stop supporting it from the year 2020. An Adobe official has given the statement:
“We will stop updating and distributing the Flash Player at the end of 2020 and encourage content creators to migrate any existing Flash content to these new open formats,”

So it’s a good move by Adobe to shut-down the support. By the time of shutting down in 2020, hardly anyone will use the Flash.
