Willyourpressthebutton .com is a malicious domain filled with adult and survey scam content is a domain name users might see during the web browsing sessions if their machines are infected with adware[1] or they got redirected from another malicious site. Regardless, those who do end up on the website should be aware that interacting with the content display might result in money loss, sensitive information disclosure to unknown parties, and malware infections.

In some cases, Willyourpressthebutton .com visitors might be asked to allow the notifications to be shown. Proceeding with these instructions would allow the site to display intrusive and inappropriate content directly to the desktop, regardless if the browser is being used or not at the time. To stop these notifications, check the bottom section of this post.

However, if you spotted that your browser is constantly redirecting you to suspicious domains, and displaying intrusive pop-ups, banners, offers, deals, as well as similar commercial content, you should check your computer for adware – only then you will be able to remove ads.

Willyourpressthebutton .com is one of many suspicious domains created by malicious individuals. The site is filled with inappropriate content, including nudity, fake notifications, survey scams,[2] etc. During our visits, we were greeted with the notorious Annual Visitor Survey or otherwise known as Browser Opinion Survey scam. It states the following:


You've been personally selected to take part in our 2019 Annual Visitor Survey! Tell us what you think of Chrome and to say “Thank you” you'll receive a chance to get an Apple iPhone Xs!

As evident, crooks behind the scam are trying to use social engineering to make users participate in the alleged survey – they offer an iPhone, seemingly for free. However, no matter which answers will be chosen, users will be offered the alleged prize in exchange for their credit card details.

This way, Willyourpressthebutton .com virus might make you give away your sensitive details directly to cybercriminals' hands. Therefore, never interact with sites that offer free rewards (there are free iPhones on the internet) or claim that your machine is infected with malware (no browser can check your computer in that way – you need dedicated programs for that). is a domain that might be associated with adware infection

If you see redirects regularly, however, you might have a different problem – adware. This deceptive software is ad-supported and often uses deceptive distribution techniques and also various tricks to avoid its termination.

In such a case, removal from your browsers can only be achieved by terminating potentially unwanted programs that might be residing on your computer. To check for PUPs and malware, scan your computer with security software like Reimage Reimage Cleaner Intego. In some cases, you can get rid of ad-supported software by simply uninstalling it via the Programs and Features (or Applications on Mac) folder. If you prefer this method – check the instructions at the bottom.

PUPs are often installed along freeware and shareware 

Advertising is a lucrative business, and it is not surprising that a lot of it is conducted via the internet sphere. Unfortunately, many malicious individuals are ready to trick users into buying useless software, offer fake gifts, claim bogus malware infections, and similar. By using deceptions, websites created by crooks manage to make users subscribe for services they do not need, install malicious programs, or even give away their credit card details.

This malicious advertising is often associated with adware – and that is one of the reasons you should avoid it. Besides the obvious security risks, adware also corrupts web browsing experience for many users who are unaware that they have the PUP installed on their computers in the first place.

Therefore, make sure you prevent adware installation with the help of these simple tips from experts:[3]

  1. Choose reputable sources for your downloads
  2. Before installing the app, check out reviews of it online
  3. Check if the program provides vital documents like EULA and Privacy Policy
  4. Decline all the deals/offers during the installation and be aware of fine print
  5. Choose Advanced/Custom installation settings to prevent PUP installation.

Access your website securely from any location

When you work on the domain, site, blog, or different project that requires constant management, content creation, or coding, you may need to connect to the server and content management service more often. It is a hassle when your website is protected from suspicious connections and unauthorized IP addresses.

The best solution for creating a tighter network could be a dedicated/fixed IP address. If you make your IP address static and set to your device, you can connect to the CMS from any location and do not create any additional issues for server or network manager that need to monitor connections and activities. This is how you bypass some of the authentications factors and can remotely use your banking accounts without triggering suspicious with each login. 

VPN software providers like Private Internet Access can help you with such settings and offer the option to control the online reputation and manage projects easily from any part of the world. It is better to clock the access to your website from different IP addresses. So you can keep the project safe and secure when you have the dedicated IP address VPN and protected access to the content management system.

Recover files after data-affecting malware attacks

While much of the data can be accidentally deleted due to various reasons, malware is one of the main culprits that can cause loss of pictures, documents, videos, and other important files. More serious malware infections lead to significant data loss when your documents, system files, and images get encrypted. In particular, ransomware is is a type of malware that focuses on such functions, so your files become useless without an ability to access them.

Even though there is little to no possibility to recover after file-locking threats, some applications have features for data recovery in the system. In some cases, Data Recovery Pro can also help to recover at least some portion of your data after data-locking virus infection or general cyber infection.
