“Fingerprint, please.” The cashier held out the scanner. I hesitated. I only had ten fingers—what if they got hacked?

“Don’t worry. Nowadays it’s easy to replace a fingerprint. Painless, too. But expensive for us if there’s a breach; you should see our insurance premiums! So it pays for us to keep good security.”

I relaxed and placed my finger on the scanner. At least they weren’t using facial recognition like the place across the road. Imagine what their premiums must be like!
