PowerShellGallery – You are installing modules from an untrusted repository

When you start working with PowerShell Modules you often find yourself in having to approve module updates over and over and over.

Install-Module PSWriteWord -AllowPrerelease

While it's great if you don't trust PowerShellGallery I tend to trust that gallery because Microsoft runs it and I only install modules I've verified prior to installation.

How can I trust PowerShellGallery?

To fix this problem simply use command below to set InstallationPolicy to trusted.

Set-PSRepository -Name 'PSGallery' -InstallationPolicy Trusted

That's all. Simple one line of code and you trust PowerShellGallery and can install modules from there without any prompts.
