A Crunchyroll settlement is coming soon to people whose privacy was impacted by the data privacy practices of the anime streaming app.

If you streamed anime on Crunchyroll in the past three years, between September 8, 2020 and September 20, 2023, you could be eligible to receive part of the settlement, which could amount to $30.

A group of users filed a complaint against Crunchyroll, a service owned by Sony, and claimed that their viewing information was shared with third-party sites without their permission.

Sharing such information is a violation of the Video Privacy Protection Act (“VPPA”), as viewing history is classified as personally identifiable information. According to Engadget, Crunchyroll denies any wrongdoing.
