How to Whitelist Userlytics with your Email Provider

As a Userlytics tester, you will receive many important test invitations, reminders and notifications in your email inbox. To ensure you did not miss anything, it is important that you whitelist Userlytics with your email provider once you sign up as a tester. Below, we’ll go over how to do this with Gmail, Outlook and Yahoo! Mail so that you can get to testing and get paid!

What is Whitelisting?

Whitelisting an email address just means that you are adding them to your approved senders list.

Whitelisting Userlytics ensures you will receive any test invitations, reminders, cancellations, system updates, and more.
