And? Did you have a question? Did you get a pop up or SMS on a cell phone? On iPad?

If you're on iOS 8, go to keychain iCloud settings, and to advanced. Here, you can name a phone with SMS capability, for using your iCloud recovery key.

Sooooooo, that means someone guessed your AppleID password and is attempting to log into your account. So you should probably change your password.
