Upon launching Flume, you will be presented with the login window. This window will also appear as a slide-down sheet when you are adding multiple accounts.
Click Let's Go! to get started and enter your Instagram username and password to login.
If you have a popular password manager installed on your Mac, the password manager's logo will appear next to the Password field allowing you quicker access to copy and paste your password securely.
Do not enter your Flume Pro licence code as your password. You activate Flume Pro from your licence code email, or manually in Flume Pro preferences.
As of Flume 2.7, you can also login with your email address or phone number (if applicable).

One-Click Login

When logging out of an account, you have the option to let Flume remember your login information. When enabling this option, a saved accounts
button appears allowing you to log quickly back into previously saved accounts with just one click.

Two-Factor Authentication

If you have enabled Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) on your account, you will be asked to enter a code sent to your linked phone number after logging in.
Flume only supports SMS-based 2FA currently. Third-party 2FA authenticator apps are not supported at this stage.
