Windows Defender Node.js pop-up

i got a few of these pop-up when starting up RoasTime today. this is the first time I recall seeing these. is this benign?

Hey @jeffrparent.AmTo

This will come up on windows any time the main version is updated (we just released 4.3.2). We run multiple processes in the background and Defender is basically telling you we are trying to talk to the processes (we “talk” via sockets over the local network). You will need to allow access or the application will not work.
