Do you want to prevent strange players from joining your server?  Or only allow a few?

This guide will show you how to properly use the Whitelist option on your Bedrock Dedicated server.


❓ What is the Whitelist ❓

The Whitelist is a list of players that are allowed to join your server. If the whitelist is enabled, players that are not listed here will not be able to join and will be automatically kicked. 

Please note that to use the following commands from this article, you need to first OP yourself.
