Although the malware has been removed from your WordPress site, you still need to ask Google to remove the site’s warning label:
- Access the Google Search Console and register your website. Skip to the third step if you have an account.
- After that, verify it either using Domain or URL prefix.
- Scroll down to find Security & Manual Actions on the left tab. Click to reveal a dropdown and select Security Issues.

You must double-check whether you successfully remove malware from your WordPress site before submitting a request. Otherwise, it will get pinned as a repeat offender, and you won’t be able to request another review for 30 days.
