What happens if the device of trust I try to log on using two-factor authentication is showing the device in a place is several hundred miles away where the device is actually?  Can I still sign?

I'm trying to sign in on a MacAir iCloud I used constantly for several years.  I enabled two-factor authentication, and my iPhone (where I get my verification code) shows my Mac Air are hundreds of miles away from its actual location.  Do I always allow to sign or is something else wrong?

Where is your Macbook Air show its location?

  • Everyone uses two-factor authentication still?

    According to the Apple HT204915, two-factor authentication will become available for an unspecified number of users "this fall" and then gradually in gradually to more and more of us. As article exists for a few months, it sometimes means between September 21 and December 21, 2015 (but it is now January 2, 2016, and the document has not been revised because of the calendar). For me, system preferences says it is not yet available. It is available to anyone? How it works?

    I had the same exact issue. With my account, I had turned on two-step verification when this system came online. I was waiting to move to two-factor authentication, but was never presented with the option to activate it. Anyway, I called Apple and they said that the two were available for my account. On this basis, I disabled the two-step verification and was then allowed to enable two-factor authentication.

    Not sure if you are in the same boat, or if what I've written makes no sense. But, hope this helps.

  • Problem with the two factor authentication with Apple TV.

    I tried to connect to my Apple TV (2nd generation, operating system and updates are up-to-date), log-in failed and indicated that I had to use two-factor authentication which I recently install on my trust Apple devices which included my iMac, iPhone and iPad. As expected, I received a notice on my Apple devices trust with the verification code to six figures to add this code to six figures at the end of my password when signing in the Apple TV. I put my password and add the code check digit at the end on my password. It did not work. Now I can not connect. Any suggestions to connect to Apple TV using 2nd generation two-factor authentication? This Apple TV device is not supported?

    There is model of Apple TV MC572LL/A with Apple TV software version 6.2.1

    Model identifier is AppleTV2, 1

    Model number is A1378

    People have been facing difficulties with this process. I have not encountered such difficulties then have not had the opportunity to test solutions. While a little pain can I suggest that you disable temporarily two authentication step until you have set up your Apple TV.

  • two-factor authentication is not available for your apple at the moment ID

    (two-factor authentication is not available for your apple at the moment ID), how can I solve this problem? I can't run many features such as Apple Watch unlock in Sierra, please help

    I had this same problem, the message that, ' two-factor authentication is not available for your apple at the moment ID. " All my devices have been updated to the latest version of the software, and all other requirements have been met. I couldn't use two-factor authentication and I couldn't open my mac using my Apple Watch.  After contacting the Apple Support, they told me that because I had an email address @mac.com older, this address was not "verified." And that the system was not able to verify the address by sending an email with a link as it does normally; He could do that for more recent @me and addresses of @icloud. Apple had to have a service technician manually to send me an email of check to my address @mac.com. I clicked on the link in the email (I don't need to enter other information), and two factors was not available instantly. Hope that you will find your problem will be solved.
