Adobe flash plugin is pseudonymous or anonymous ?

For a start thanks a lot whonix forum for support .

On https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Features#Feature_List , on Feature List there is:
Adobe Flash anonymously. BUT on https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Browser_Plugins#How_to_use_Flash_-_EASY , write : Your IP/location will still be hidden. Consider the plugin usage pseudonymous rather than anonymous.
Please make it more clearly to understand easier, -if install adobe flash plugin on whonix workstation , and enable it on TBB , then the TBB will be pseudonymous rather than anonymous?

Listen to https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Browser_Plugins more since it is
the detailed page on the subject.

Yes , write Consider the plugin usage pseudonymous rather than anonymous, so adobe flash plugin on TBB make the TBB pseudonymous rather than anonymous , right?

Good day,

yes, that is what the page linked by @Patrick tells you.

Have a nice day,


must change it to pseudoanonymously please.

Good day,

Just changed. Thanks for pointing it out. Word of advice though:

Adobe, the creator of Flash, said last year, that no one should use Flash anymore for web applications: http://www.theverge.com/2015/12/1/9827778/stop-using-flash So, if I may recommend, stop using Flash. If even the creator says it shouldn’t be used, it’s time to stop using it.

Have a nice day,




Tails folks prepared a good list of Flash alternatives, see Tails Flash support:

And there write: JDownloader was suggested by an user.
That is my confirmation for successfully use of JDownloader inside whonix workstation , works with vimeo, and with allmost i know sites .
