I am often in different countries, but I didn’t block your Apple ID. How so?
Travel lovers can say that there have been in different countries and enjoyed the same uchetku Apple ID, but Apple did not block them.
This happens due to the smart algorithm tracking the activity of accounts.
You want it or not, the iPhone periodically checks your location. IP address from your home Wi-Fi network, cellular data, GPS.
Given that in the XXI century, teleportation is not yet invented, physically you can’t move thousands of kilometers in just a few seconds. And that’s just what happens during the change of IP address.
