Question: how do i approve my iphone

I'm following the procedure on my phone but then it goes to a screen the says,

Approve this iPhone

Go to one of your other

devices signed into iCloud

to approve this iPhone.

At the bottom left corner is a question in blue that is partially obscured. All I can read is "e this iPhone?"

When I sign into my iCloud account I can't find anything that gives an option to Approve this iPhone.

Thanks but that lot means nothing to me. I am being prompted to set up two factor authentication by messages on my phone and a red dot on the settings icon. I follow the instructions but hit a stop when it tells me to approve my iPhone on another device. I can’t find anything on the iCloud site that refers to this.

Hmmm... I would read this article on two-factor authentication: Two-factor authentication for Apple ID - Apple Support

Codes are sent to your other devices, so you need to have them open and connected to the internet to get codes.
