Preapplied screen protector?

so i’ve been using my chuwi ubook for a while and my screen has gotten a bunch of scratches. I noticed there is a plastic layer (pretty nice when drawing as it’s not slippery) but its hard to get my nails under, so now i’m wondering if this is a very secure screenprotector or if it’s part of the screen? I’m kinda scared to try and remove it because the samsung fold had a layer that seemed like a screen protector, but if you removed it the screen would break

thanks in advance

I removed my screen protector on day 1 because mine came with bubbles. I wished they allowed us to apply it ourselves like xiaomi does. However, my only problem is that I have to always wipe away the dust, fingerprints, and smudges
