Yes and No. Spyware and adware can be part of a mobile operating system to an extent. Apple and Android both track their customers habits legally because we agree to the Terms of Service. The extent of what they track has not been determined to my knowledge. Some say they track our every move. I agree with that to a certain point as the phones always seem to know where we are, but do Apple and Google actually track us.....I doubt it. What do they want with me specifically? So generally speaking, yes, we're being tracked, but specifically speaking, it's not likely.
