I could have sworn the /tos stated the policy, but I couldn't find the specific clause. Most streaming sites, and I believe CR is included in this, allow you to share your account with your immediate household, but anything beyond that and you may be violating the Terms of Service, and risk having your account suspended.

I think that if the account is shared over like 20 users in the span of 5 continents I'm pretty sure that will be a red flag. "LAWL"

Though I'm pretty sure that Crunchyoll isn't going to harass a customer for sharing an account from time to time to watch with a friend or two; that just makes them look bad and will be a waste of time and resources to be individually screening out users logged into multiple IP addresses. I have my account registered to too many devices on multiple IPs because of my home and mobile services and sometimes watching at a friend's house, and I haven't gotten a warning yet, and I shouldn't.

The same thing is in effect with the Playstation Network, but the Playstation Network has a five device limit on the login. I think Crunchyroll has a similar system in place to combat account abuse if any red flags come up.

I think that activating and de-activating the device has something to do with this account abuse:

(Just a thought.)
(I wonder what would happen if I de-activate all those devices.)

Us mods don't have anything to do with that side of things, so I can't say much besides it is okay to share with your housemates be that family or otherwise. I remember reading something about it being okay for anime clubs too, but I could be wrong. As for having a lot of devices, I don't think it is an issue considering how many I have activated:

I don't think there's any way they could moderate that properly. People are frequently watching anime at friends' houses, anime clubs, out in public (so different IP addresses), travelling abroad, etc. So I think it's safe to say you could probably do it. But to find out if you should I'd browse the ToS once more.
