Add a favicon in WordPress

The favicon or site icon is an image you see on the tab above your URL when you open your site in a browser. It helps visitors to find your site on their screen when they have multiple browser tabs open. You can manage the site icon settings in the Customizer.

Note: Before following the steps below, you should upload the image you want to use as a favicon to your media library. The image should be square and at least 512 by 512 pixels in size.

  1. Sign in to WordPress.
  2. In the left-side menu, select Appearance > Themes.
  3. In the Customizer, select Site Identity.
  4. In the Site icon section, select Change image. If your site doesn't already have a favicon, select Select site icon.
  5. Under Select image, select the Media Library tab.
  6. Find the image you want to use as the site icon and select it. Then select Select.
  7. Choose a section which you would like to be visible in a browser and then select Crop image.
  8. Select Publish.
