Unsafe Code - Safe For Stores?

This is a question about the Windows Store and The Google Play Store. I am using a library that uses unsafe code. I.e. the .NET Standard DLL is marked with "Allow Unsafe Code" . My question is is there any known issue with stores accepting unsafe code? It seems to test OK in UWP and Android, but I'm worried that this library will bring me unstuck when I try to deploy to the stores.

    This should not be a problem. Unsafe code basically means that they are working directly with memory pointers. As long as that is done correctly and the app is not crashing, then there should be no problem.
