With regard to the Internet, a whitelist most commonly refers to a list of websites that are allowed to display ads to its visitors. With more and more users installing ad-blocking programs, many sites deny access to visitors until they turn off these programs. In other words, the users must whitelist a specific site.

Additionally, a whitelist may refer to a list of senders that an e-mail blocking program will allow through a spam filter or another e-mail filter.
