If you encounter an error while playing Minecraft or if you encounter any problems while playing the game, then you might encounter an error code about whitelisting on your device’s screen.
To fix this error, you need to try a few solutions.
Change "whitelist" to true on the server properties
If you have changed the "whitelist" option to true on your server, then you need to change it back to false. To do this, go to the server properties on your device and change the "whitelist" option from true to false.
If you want to make sure that this is the correct setting, then try connecting again.
Ask your friend to add you again
If you are connected to a multiplayer server and the error still occurs, then try asking your friend if they can add you again. If they can’t add you, then ask them if they know anyone who can help with this problem.
Switch from wired to a wireless connection (or vice versa)
If switching from a wired connection (LAN) to a wireless connection (Wi-Fi) does not solve the problem, then try switching from a wireless connection (Wi-Fi) back to a wired connection (LAN). In addition, try restarting your device and see if that helps solve the problem.
If it does not help solve the problem, then switch back and forth between the two types of connections until it solves the problem. In addition, make sure that no other devices are using either type of connection.
If you are connected to a multiplayer server and the error still occurs, then try disabling your VPN service on your device. You can do this by going to Settings > General > Date & Time > Mobile Network > Access Point Names and disabling the VPN option.
If this does not solve the problem, then you will need to contact your VPN provider for further assistance.
Make sure your antivirus is not interfering with the game
If you are connected to a multiplayer server and the error still occurs, then make sure that your antivirus is not interfering with the game. In addition, make sure that you have selected an antivirus program that is compatible with Minecraft servers and programs.
