hello i live in tunisia and i am not using a vpn.
i just changed my internet provider temporarly to some company that uses 3G technology and suddenly i have access to all crunchyroll's library even for the titles that are blocked in the USA (i basically have access to all the titles)
can someone explain this to me
did crunchyroll add the titles to north africa liscences or is it from my provider

You can check to see what your detected country is by going to the /contact form, and scrolling down to the system details.

Something similar was reported in this thread: /forumtopic-866171/problems-with-country-detection. My suggestion is to try getting a new IP address by restarting your modem, or contacting your ISP to have them reset it remotely.

Of course, if you choose to enjoy the selection while you can, I don't think CR will hold it against you in this case.

so after some searching it is the IP my ISP gave me
but it is recognized as a tunisian IP adress by some site like the one in the screen
and netflix (the french text isn't really important the screen just shows the localisation of my IP)
and according to my offer with my ISP it is an IP adress that doesn't change even when i restart my modem
well anyways if the problem isn't solved i don't know if i am breaking the TOS by using crunchyroll with my actual IP

You aren't forging or altering your location in any way, so no. I don't recall anything in the ToS that would require a user to stop watching if CR's system isn't identifying their country correctly.

I would say relax and enjoy it while it lasts, but keep in mind it will likely soon be corrected.
