First one. The second one is an insult. Clearly, you want to tell that you are not ignorant, so you also wish that the receiver of the message is not ignorant too.

No matter of politeness, when the clause is negative, you can't use "too".

You need to operate with either:

"I hope you're not, either"

Let me know If i helped.

"too" is affirmative, "either" (in this context) is negative. So it isn't grammatically correct to say "I hope you're not, too" -- should be "I hope you're not, either."
