As you must have noticed, certain websites request you to enable flash in order to play videos or see blocked content. You will find below the steps to enable Flash in Chrome Browser for all or specific websites.
Enable Flash in Chrome Browser
Google’s Chrome browser blocks Flash content by default, in order to protect its users from inherent security risks associated with Flash.
However, Google is committed to supporting Flash until its eventual expiry date in 2020 and makes it easy for its users to either Allow or Block Flash content in Chrome Browser.
In-fact, there is an in-built Flash player within the Chrome browser and there is no need to download Adobe Flash Player, in order to play Flash Content in Chrome browser.
So, let us go ahead and take a look at how to enable Flash in Chrome Browser.
Steps to Enable Flash in Chrome Browser

On the Content Settings screen, scroll down and click on Flash.
On the next screen, make sure that option for Ask first (recommended) is enabled.
Move the toggle to ON position, in case the option for Ask (recommended) was not enabled by default on your computer.
Next, open the website that has Flash content in Chrome Browser and you will see the usual “Install Adobe Flash Player” notice.
Simply, click on the little information icon located to the left of the URL in the address bar and you will see the option to Allow Flash content for this website.
If prompted, refresh the browser and you will be able to Play the Flash video.
