Hi. When I am on my MacBook Air a message comes up from apple saying;

This Mac can’t connect to iCloud because of a problem with (my apple ID) Open iCloud preferences to fix this problem

I then need to get a verification code from my iPhone to log on to my apple account. On my iPhone it then says;

Your Apple ID is being used to sign into a MacBook Air near London, England. (I am in Northern Ireland, last in London in February and Mac not with me)

I have to choose whether to Allow or Do Not Allow
Is this a geographical error? HAs my Mac somehow re-set its location to London, not Northern Ireland.

Too scared to Allow in case I invite unwanted hacking mastermind!

Any advice Apple whizzes?
