Your allowlist was previously known as your whitelist.
The Content ID allowlist lets Content Managers protect certain channels from automated Content ID claims.
If you have an agreement with a channel ahead of time and have cleared them to use your content, you can add them to your allowlist so claims will not appear on their uploads. This is particularly important for licensed content.
For example, if you're a music label and you've licensed your music to a car company’s channel that regularly uses your music in their videos, you should add the channel to your allowlist to avoid claiming their content.
