If your concern is your privacy and protection from unwarranted unauthorized snooping, don't "plug in" to the electronic society.

Cancel your mobile phone account, delete all of your email accounts, cancel your internet, directtv, facebook, twitter, pinterest, imgur, tumblr younameit accounts, buy a log cabin in the woods, and don't ever use another electronic device again in your life. Use cash and barter.

Seriously, in today's society, E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G is connected to a data network at some point, and every part of your life can be traced if necessary.

If you live in a city, you are under surveillance multiple times a day. If you live in a rural area, you are still likely to be on camera at least a few times a day if you go to a market or any retail store.

If anything, you can take comfort in the fact that there is a nearly incalculable (word?) amount of data being gathered on a daily basis. So the likelihood of your particular pile of 1s and 0s falling into the wrong hands is lower than your odds of winning the powerball. (assuming you're taking normal precautions to safeguard your info)
