Question: Why am I being asked to confirm Two Factor Authenticatio on my home computer?

Whenever I go into iCloud or want to post messages in the Apple communities while on my home MAC mini, I am prompted by Two Factor Authentication and have to input a number generated. This is my main computer located always at my home? I can understand being checked when I have my iPad somewhere off premises, but see no reason my at-home computer should be receiving this message all the time.


Can someone please suggest what I might try to avoid this? I must have something ticked off that is causing this issue.


Thanks,
