Visual Studio Code adds Workplace Trust on May 2021 Version

A Workplace Trust capability in the upgrade is intended to provide for safe browsing and editing of code, regardless of the source or original authors. Workplace Trust lets developers decide whether project folders should allow or restrict automatic code execution. With Workplace Trust, an extra layer of security is provided when working with unfamiliar code when a workspace is open in Restricted Mode. This mode tries to prevent automatic code execution by disabling or limiting the operation of several VS Code features, including tasks, debugging, workspace settings, and extensions.
