Among their many other functions, mobile devices now help us buy our morning coffee more quickly or pay back a friend with less hassle.

Almost 9 out of 10 of those we surveyed said they would discontinue using a digital payment provider if they are victim to cybercriminal activities because of a data breach at the provider.
