We never show which WoW account your characters belong to. The only account-identifiable information we show is your BattleTag, visible only to you. This is used to indicate which Battle.net account you used to log in. We also do not show that certain characters may belong to the same account. There should be no indication on WOL that allows others to infer that a certain character is your alt.

However, if you get ranked on an alt in a given report, you will still be ranked. If you upload a guild using that character, that character will be shown as the creator of that report (not linked to your main or BattleTag in any way). If your main is called Maihem and your alt Maihemtwo, then others might be able to infer that that's your alt :P

I hope that answers your question. If not, please post back here!

Hm, I don't exactly know. It's not shown on WOL at least. Perhaps they added you as RealID / BattleTag friend? That would allow them to see your alts being online as you.
