    hey everyone.

    I turned on two step verification on my iMac.

    Then looked at my iPhone and had to verify however when I did a message popped up on the mac saying my account was logged in on a device near London England.

    My phone is actually in Belfast Ireland... and I knew it was me as the message popped up the second I clicked on verify on the iPhone.

    Is this normal? Do I 'allow'?

    This is normal. The location comes from the IP address, not the physical location. Even then, you still need to verification code it gives you after you click "Allow" to sign in.
