Safe Mode is the default user mode in Safari 6.1 or later, but it can prevent content from working as expected. Learn how to enable rich-media content created in Adobe Flash to run in Unsafe Mode.

Note:

AIR users who encounter Unknown Publisher warning while installing the apps should contact their application developer for an updated application installer.

Content not working correctly in Safari

By default, Safari 6.1 and later play rich-media content in Safe Mode. Safe Mode protects users by restricting what can be done with content created in Adobe Flash. But, it also prevents some content from working correctly, such as installing AIR applications or Adobe Connect Add-in.

If you trust the current domain, you can use the following steps to enable the content to run in Unsafe Mode. Unsafe Mode places fewer restrictions on content so the content can work correctly.

This behavior is the default for Safari.
