Sorry if this has been asked before! But I wanted to know. I'm moving into my friends place, and him and his brother are really into anime as well. Would we be allowed to share my account? It'd be on our PS3, PS4, my pc and my friends PC, if possible. Again, sorry! I just didn't find any posts, aside from a few years ago, on the matter. Thanks!

I don't believe it's stated as such in the /ToS, but according to CR staff/customer support, sharing your account with your immediate "household" (familial or not) is within acceptable use. There shouldn't be a hard limit on the number of devices either, but streaming to all four at the same time could affect the video quality.

So long as you don't share your account information with everyone that know, there should be no issues with letting your friends access CR under your account.

Discretion: I am not a representative of CR, so if you'd rather wait on "official" word, there have been other threads asking similar questions, or wait for a member of the /staff to pop in.

Thanks! I might wait for a reply from a member of the CR team, but I'll also take your word on it. I appreciate you taking the time to let me know. Just wanted to make sure it isn't a problem ^^

@Adenthecaringone:
Sharing account with family member within the same household should be alright.

But I will recommend not sharing such information with people you met (school/online/outside of school)
Reason is because they'll be able to access your information including billing information.
Which may also enable them to buy CR shops under your current billing payment if you set it up automatically (paypal etc)
