> 25% of people autofill credit card details?

To be fair, it was a Wild Ass Guess[*], since I couldn't find any stats after a quick websearch.

Certainly, I personally refuse to let Google or any other company store my card details, partly for security and partly because it helps to reduce the number of "oh look a shiny *click*" incidents which tend to occur otherwise.

However, I'm technically-aware enough to be paranoid about such things. The vast majority of people online these days are not as tech-savvy and in general, convenience tends to trump security. So while 25% seemed like a reasonable low-ball guesstimate, I wouldn't be surprised if the actual number was significantly higher!

[*] As in, pulled out of my^H thin air...
