This is probably greenfly rather that white fly. Green fly leave white skins when the grow, which looks like white fly, whereas white fly fly out of a plant when it is lightly touched.

Take the plant outdoor and spray with a house plant insecticide in a shady place. Take it indoors after a few hours.
