  • You do not need anything more. UWP are compiled to native code (either directly or through .net native), so you can't get better protection than that.

  • Is this also true if I converted an application via Desktop Bridge?

    Thanks.

  • No, that one depends on the technology behind the desktop bridge app. If it is a native compiled app, then yes, otherwise no.
