The Neanderthal Parallax is a trilogy exploring a society with cryptographically secure ominipresent surveillance.

Light of Other Days is set in a world in which wormhole technology allows viewing of anywhere on earth by anyone and the ramifications.

David Brin's "Kiln People" is set in a highly transparent world, and I think it started me thinking about how I shouldn't trust the future to keep anything private

It's more of a backdrop than a key focus, but the Culture series by Iain Banks features a civilisation where AI minds can monitor everything on their spaceships and habitats to near perfection. The only thing they choose not to monitor (usually), despite being able to is the thoughts of biological lifeforms.
