Hey guys I just got an email from Crunchyroll inc. saying that my account has been compromised. The email looked fake. And I was able to access my account through the app just fine. I did just change my PW though. Just want you guys to be weary of you get that email.

General rule of thumb for e-mails like that: never follow the link in the e-mail itself.

in most email accounts you can hover over said link and if it isn't legit don't click on it, via a device (as I don't use that) then I can't help entirely but it does give a general idea. but, yes, never click on a link in an email from someone you don't know, even then be slightly suspicious. if you still have the email, report it as a scam. also if there are spelling, grammar, etc in the email itself, strong possibility it's fake as well.
