One of the most interesting features I found in the Total security is the Anti-Theft. I checked the same and it showed me my correct location to an approximate block level. The software detects the ISP and location of the service node based on the the IP address of the PC on which the software is installed. This feature is accessible on the online dashboard, so if your laptop is stolen or lost, you can login to the My-Bitdefender dashboard and check the location of the laptop.
