The newest versions of Adobe Flash Player on Windows and Mac OS can regularly check for updates and install them for you.

Please note that when this update occurs, only Flash Player will be installed.

If you want to be notified about every Flash Player update, select "Notify me to install updates" when initially installing Flash Player or from the Advanced tab in the Flash Player control panel.

Double-click Flash Player, click the Advanced tab, and select an option under Updates.
