Whenever you try to login to Google from a new device, and if you have 2-step verification enabled, you will receive a prompt on your trusted device or devices to make sure it is really you trying to login to your account. You will receive this request on not only the device that you are currently using but also on all the other devices that you have marked as trusted. This is not that big of a deal of all your trusted devices are near you. But for security reasons, it is recommended that you make only the device you are currently using or that is always with you as a trusted device. If you have multiple trusted devices, you do not need to worry, you can easily remove extra devices from the trusted devices list. Here’s how to remove a device from Trusted Device in Google.
Remove a device from Trusted Device from Google Account
