Pretty sure this is impossible so I'll ask here rather than bother the staff with a support ticket.

I remembered today that 2 weeks ago I logged in to a computer at my local anime club to share guest passes with anybody there who wanted one (they often expire long before I remember to share them). I realized this when anime episodes we watched on Crunchyroll yesterday are on my list as having seen them. This bothers me as it is against the TOS but I'd forgotten to log out. I don't want to put my account in danger by staying logged in to a public computer but it's unlikely that anyone will misuse it before I can get to it Monday after work. I mean, how often do you think random strangers will access Crunchyroll in a library?

Still, I would feel better if there were a way to log out remotely somehow.

You should definitely change your password right away before someone else does it. Not sure if that logs you out if someone is currently active, but if the browser was shut down at any point, they shouldn't be able to get back in again.

I think you should contact support about this kind of thing in general. Anything that happens under your account is on you, after all - if someone started spamming, or attacking other users, etc, it would look like you were doing that until some deeper investigation revealed otherwise, but even then they could be PMing in response to any warnings or bans that were supposed to go to you, since they were still on your account.

I'm not sure there is a way to remotely log out, or force a log out of all your devices, but at least there would be a record of you bringing it up with support in case the worst happens.

You can deactivate /acct/?action=devices remotely, but I've never seen browser sessions listed there.

Yeah, I think that's basically in case you lose your phone.. a logged in computer is a different matter with the UI we can see
