Why is there a global-metadata.dat file?

What does the global-metadata.dat file do? Can I remove from my builds?

The reason for this question is that hackers use this file to reverse engineer my game.

There are many answers here - https://forum.unity.com/threads/il2cpp-and-global-metadata-dat.909584/
Most of which is pretty unsatisfactory… I think its a case of can’t fix it - wont try. @huhund
