Is it legal for an apartment complex to not allow their tenants to sit on their porch at night, and threaten to go up on their rent for it?

My sister and I were sitting on the porch smoking a cigarette when an employee of some sort approached is and told us that we can’t sit outside on our porch past a certain time. He told us that he would report us and they would go up on our rent. I couldn’t find anything online about it.
