The documentation states that it will be removed from browsers, so the feature will not be available. That probably means that your code will stop working. Time to rethink your project.

Provide some context on what you exactly are doing.... usually when one has a problem with a line of code, they provide the actual line of code

They're removing/deprecating it because direct communication from the browser to an external client-side app is NOT secure, nor even to be trusted. In other words, it's a BAD idea, and you shouldn't be doing it.

If you need to transfer data between the browser and a client side app, have the browser write that data to a database that the client side app can connect to.
