      ok, not using android pay anymore. my money, my choice. if this is the direction Google is going I may be thinking my devoted, dedicated, salesmen like relationship with their products! Booo Google for this. the greatest thing about android is the freedom to suffer the consequences of our mistakes, don’t take that from us! make an opt out button for the lock screen prerequisite.
