When you add an app to the list of allowed apps in a firewall—sometimes called unblocking—or when you open a firewall port, you allow a specific app to send info to or from your PC through the firewall, as though you drilled a hole in the firewall. This makes your PC less secure and might create opportunities for hackers or malware to use one of those openings to get to your files or use your PC to spread malware to other PCs.
A port stays open until you close it, but an allowed app opens the "hole" only when needed. Generally, it's safer to add an app to the list of allowed apps than to open a port.
