Allowlisting is a security process that permits only users in a pre-approved list to access a device, network, or system. This is like creating a VIP list that blocks unauthorized parties from accessing your network or device.

Allowlisting vs. Blocklisting

Allowlisting is safer than blocklisting because it imposes stricter rules. However, blocklisting allows everyone to access your device or network except the ones on the list.
