International fans cannot make a Flo account as it requires a Korean phone number, but you can purchase/rent Flo accounts and passes from shops.
Android: download the apk (link)
IOS: you should have an apple ID created with ‘Korea’ as a location. Download the Flo app, and open it with the new apple ID (otherwise you will get the error “this app has been purchased with a different ID”). You can also change the location of your current ID, but take note that you will lose your ongoing subscriptions.
Desktop: go to music-flo.com
HOW TO LOGIN
For 1st login: accept the required permissions
Due to the battery optimization settings of android OS 6 or higher, playback may be interrupted when the screen turns off. To check if battery optimization or power saving mode is enabled for flo: go to settings > apps > Flo > data usage > allow background data
Click on your profile bottom right > then click ‘login’ (로그인) top right
Login with your account information: either with ID (email), kakaotalk, naver account or apple (you need a korean number for account creation). Select your account (‘character’) and confirm.
On your homescreen, click the settings wheel top right
Click on ‘song playback settings’ (곡 재생 설정) > make sure duplicate songs are allowed in a playlist
Go back and click ‘app settings’ (앱 설정) > scroll down, make sure ‘maintain audio focus’ is on (android), then select ‘cache data saving’ (캐싱으로 데이터 절약하기)

Go back & select streaming quality: AAC 128kbps
HOW TO CHECK YOUR STREAM COUNT
To see how many streams you have left, click settings in the top right corner
To see which songs you have fully played (streams deducted), click your profile & then songs you’ve listen to a lot (많이 들은).
HOW TO STREAM (limited streams)
DO NOT mute the player, fast forward or rewind, pause the songs. Streams are only counted once the full song has been played
If you have limited streams (ex. 300), we recommend streaming manually (searching for the song to play) once per hour only! Flo will only count 1 listen from a unique account per hour towards the chart.
Click the search icon at the bottom > search for 드림캐쳐 and click their name > click dreamcatcher’s profile > like dreamcatcher’s page > find the song you want to play, and click the play icon next to the song > like the song
HOW TO MAKE A PLAYLIST (unlimited streams)
If you have unlimited streams, you can make a playlist & put it on repeat (you can edit & make a new playlist to avoid bot behaviour). The title track should play more than once per hour, it won’t count towards the chart update, but it will still be added to the total play count!
Click the search icon at the bottom > search for 드림캐쳐 and click their name > click dreamcatcher’s profile > like dreamcatcher’s page > click on the album that contains the songs you want to add > click the play button next to all the songs you want to add to the playlist (in order) & select the playlist icon. You can add the title track multiple times!
To delete songs, you can swipe left, or click the edit button up top > select the songs you want to delete & click ‘delete’ (삭제) > confirm
That’s all you need to do to stream! Remember to only play the title track 1/hour if you have limited streams!
