Many retailers are working to complete their 'apps' so that you can use your phone as a debit card, making purchases easier. Right now you can purchase coffee just by saying your name. Retailers envision the day when you are able to make your purchase, including any reward card information or points just by using your phone.
There can be a price for this convenience, and that is the possibility of making your information easier for thieves to steal since it is all in your phone. Right now many of us carry so much in our phones, contacts, schedules, emails, texts, etc that even losing a phone is a major stressor.
Do you look forward to making purchases just using your phone?
