Adobe Flash Player Settings Manager is a way to control what information, if any, is stored on your system by the Flash Player. Though the utility is part of the installation process, you have to go to the Adobe help site to access the Settings Manager.
It looks like this:
So what does the Settings Manager do?
The Settings Manager is a special control panel that runs on your local computer but is displayed within and accessed from the Adobe website. Adobe does not have access to the settings that you see in the Settings Manager or to personal information on your computer.
Adobe goes on to state how each of the functions operates:
Adobe is committed to providing you with options to control SWF or FLV content and applications that run in Flash Player. The Adobe Flash Player Settings Manager lets you manage global privacy settings, storage settings, security settings, and automatic notification settings by using the following panels:
- To specify whether websites must ask your permission before using your camera or microphone, you use the Global Privacy Settings panel.
- To specify the amount of disk space that websites you haven’t yet visited can use to store information on your computer, or to prevent websites you haven’t yet visited from storing information on your computer, you use the Global Storage Settings panel.
- To view or change your security settings, you use the Global Security Settings panel.
- To specify if and how often Flash Player should check for updated versions, you use the Global Notifications Settings panel.
- To view or change the privacy settings for websites you have already visited, you use the Website Privacy Settings panel.
To view or change the storage settings for websites you have already visited, or to delete information that any or all websites have already stored on your computer, you use the Website Storage Settings panel.
