It's been since the last 3 Days that Dragon Ball Super appeared in my history of watching. I'm very sure that nobody in my family has watched it, some of it was to times where we were sleeping. I m going to change the password and see if this still happens. I wonder though if that might be a bug or if somebody has access to my account.

Someone probably squatting on your account. Although it doesn't sound like you have asked who has been watching what in your family.

My suggestion is never to leave credit card information on your Crunchyroll account and try to change your password every 30-60 days.
Also, make sure never to use the same password on multiple websites (it's an amateur mistake).
Check on the website "haveibeenpwned.com" to determine if your email or password may have been exposed in any recent or well-known security breaches.

Just to clarify it, i'm 100% it wasn't anybody in my family. There isn't anybody here besides me who would watch Crunchyroll. However its just a weird thing, I'm assuming its a glitch or a bug. I find it hard to believe somebody would hack an account unless crunchyroll got hacked. Because there is more then 1 or 2 free options to watch anime online for free. The only reason i pay for Crunchyroll is so i can see and watch it on TV without getting another computer set on that television. Basicly because it comfortable.

It just striked me as odd and yeah i changed my password anyway but if it keeps popping up in my history... I guess we find out soon enough.

Snarky answers aside, what this is usually a result of, is having the same login id and password on multiple sites, one of which (not CR) has been hacked. The hacked site info has been pasted to a publically available place, and someone has grabbed the information and tried the combination on other sites of use to them.

Changing your password is good, but to be safe, you should make sure that you use a different one on every site you have an account set up. Using a password manager (such as lastpass) can assist you with this.

You also should go to the following link on your account and deacticate any devices that are attached to your account now. You may have to re-log in to the ones you use, but better safe than sorry.

I did change the password and it still does happen. The thing what makes me think its a Crunchyroll related issue is, when i took a closer look at the Dragonball show whoever is watching it, it asked me if i wanted to take it off queue. I checked my my list and it wasn't even on there yet i was able to take it off. Very strange. Yeah i m not on that hacked site for anything recently. Adobe got hacked back in 2013 but i use alpha numeric passwords these days with symbols if possible.

So that doesn't exclude that it could be hacked however changing the password should have done the trick at least for a while. I really wonder if its a glitch where i get to get stuff in my history from somebody elses account.

Also i appreciate all the advice, thanks.

Changing the password was needed, but it doesn't expire someone else's cookie on their own PC. It may take a while before they are forced totally out. Think about how often you don't have to re-enter your password every day to use the site, as much as a month or more sometimes... Also, you didn't say whether you deactivated on the device link I provided, so just in case, I'll mention that again.

We do not show any usable card information to anyone, not even the owner of the account or our own staff. Credit card data listed on Crunchyroll cannot be used for anything else. Even purchases on our own store require re-authentication of the card.
