Blizzard has added a full opt-out option to its Real ID service, which'll span across all of its enabled games - currently World of Warcraft and StarCraft II, and likely Diablo III. In a statement, a Blizzard community representative noted a few changes to the company's Real ID program, which allows players to connect across Battle.net by sharing their real-life names:

"These options provide Real ID users with additional tools for customizing the service based on their preferences, enabling the ability to opt in or out of Real ID "Friends of Friends" and "Add Facebook Friends" features or to turn off Real ID altogether that provide you with even more options to stay connected while you play by making it easier for real-life friends to locate each other on Battle.net.

You can easily enable or disable these features through your Battle.net privacy settings by logging in to your Battle.net account."
