Is there a way to deploy an Electron app such as to "hide" or "encrypt" the code such that no one can modify it?
If so, what is that process?

Thanks

I have no knowledge about electron. But the feature you are trying to search is called "code obfuscation"

Also code obfuscation is done from the point of view that no one can easily reverse engineer a source code and then use it as their own with modifications.

Electron is from Github, and seems Open Source oriented. From what I have seen, the Javascript "Uglify" tool is the main way to do this in Electron packaging.
