In Visual studio code, when cursor is placed next to curly braces, brackets it highlights all other symbols that’s in current file. Some may like it some would like it to disable. Personally, I find it annoying and would like to hide it. I had to dig in settings and run hit and trial to disable the settings. The setting that’s need to be disabled is

"editor.selectionHighlight": false
