Found Mature content in my son's chrome history, but shows a future date?

I found xxx content in the history of chrome browser in my son's Motorola Electrify M, but it shows a future date of January 17, 2015.  Any idea why this may be?  He's 10, and pretty trustworthy so far.  He tells me the only thing naughty he's seen on his phone was a minecraft how-to video with a bad word in it, and there's no xxx content in the past history of chrome, only future.  We didn't have CE installed on his phone until today, so I can't refer to any reports for more info.  I tried doing a google search on "chrome history showing future dates" but can't find anything related.  Any ideas/advice?  

btw, i discovered the content through the screen time app remote control.  I found the content in the history there (also showing a future date of 1/17/15), then checked the chrome history and saw it there too.

Hey Scott,

Thanks for taking the time to post. 

I would guess that the date/time is not accurately set on his device. (meaning his device actually thinks it is currently in the year 2017) Otherwise that is something that I have never heard of happening. I would check the date/time and then keep an eye on it, as far as I know it is impossible for history in chrome to report anything other than what was actually visited.
