5 Funny Prank Sites to Make You Look Like a Tech Genius

No, it is not April Fools day, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have some fun. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. You have no choice but to work if you want to make that money, but there should always be some fun time as well. Since you’re already on your computer, you can check out some prank sites that are going to make your friends think you’re a hacker by night.

The following sites will scare your friends into thinking you’re sending them some kind of virus or that you’re hacking into a government website. You can laugh while your friends have a panic attack thinking that what you’re doing is real.

1. Hacker Typer

With Hacker Typer you can make your friends believe that you learned how to code out of nowhere. This prank site will take you to a page with a black background, and as soon as you start typing all sorts of codes will appear on the screen.


It doesn’t matter what keys you press, as the screen will continue to show you codes. After a while, the site will display an “Access Denied” message on the screen, making the hacking experience even more real.

2. Fake Windows Update Screen

With Fake Windows Update Screen, you can either scare your friends with what looks like an update that will erase the entire disk or what looks like a Windows 98 update. This last option is great to make your friends think that they are going to go from Windows 10 to Windows 98.


When you try to place the cursor over the page, it will disappear. This will make your friends panic even more thinking they are unable to stop the process. The option that will make your friends believe their disk will be erased is a Linux update.

In the top-left corner you can see how far along the “update” is. There is also a Mac option you can use to prank your Mac friends. There is a total of five options. You can choose from ten different animations to prank your friends.

Tip: when you are pranking your friend with this trick, make sure you press F11 to make the browser go full screen. This will make the prank site more realistic.

3. The Red Button Prank

The Red Button Prank is a lot of fun. When you first enter the page, you’ll see a big red button with the words, “Do not Press.” Since humans are curious by nature, your friend won’t be able to resist the urge to click the button.


When he or she does click it, the button will display a message to stop clicking on the button, making you want to press it even more. The more you click, the funnier the message gets.

The site will even play games with you and display various red buttons to see if you’ll give up and stop clicking on the button. This option is a lot of fun.

4. Shady URL

Whenever a friend sends you a URL, you can try to see what it’s about by reading some of the words in it. That way you at least get an idea of what it’s about. With Shady URL you can trick your friends into thinking you’ve sent them some type of virus or IP stealer.


Even a URL from Google can be turned into a suspicious-looking one. For example, if you type “www.google.com,” you end up getting a URL that says something like http://www.5z8.info/old-older-goats.mov_x4l8fw_ip-stealer. This will definitely make your friend panic and wonder what in the world he/she has just received.

5. Geek Typer

Geek Typer is full of great options when it comes to making your friends believe you’ve turned into a hacker. Different versions will make everyone think you’re trying to hack into a government or company site. You can choose from twenty-four different themes that include a visual studio, alien theme, umbrella corp, shield version and more.


Depending on the theme you choose, you’ll either get sounds that will make the experience even more real or pop-up windows to make everyone think you just opened them. Some themes also have alarms that will go off making everyone believe that you’ve really tried to access a government website.


You’ll definitely have a lot of fun with these sites, making everyone think you’ve crossed over to the dark side of technology. Which site do you think you’re going to try out first? Leave a comment below and let us know.
