I think that's the big thing for me. My distrust for companies, especially those operating here in the US, is high enough that I aim to give them as little extra data as possible. I've worked for too many companies and startups here to see that their handing of Personal Identifiable Information (PII) is quite often a joke.

It is is easier to steal a credit card for sure. However is the potential biometric security risk worth it? If a CC is stolen most places can cancel the card in minutes and even reverse any charges that may have been made. Digital wallets may also be more secure. This just feels like a "cool" convenience, and too many companies opt for these to entice customers while overlooking potential risks.
