Why and How Do You Add a Favicon to Your WordPress Website?

Every modern and contemporary website on the Internet, whether it is a personal blog or a complex company website, has a special symbol that is visualized in the browser.

What is a favicon - an example shown on hosting Jump.

This icon (Favicon) complements your brand identity and makes your website recognizable when the user has many tabs loaded in their browser. (Which is quite common for most users).

If you do not set up a custom favicon, your site will still have an icon, but it will either be the WordPress logo (the default for every WordPress site) or an image that the theme developers have set if you are using a pre-installed package of theme and modules. (They will often find them when you buy a theme from ThemeForest or another source where you download a ready-made complete package with a WordPress installation, the theme, and the required modules).

In these cases, apart from not showing your brand more in one place, it is also more difficult for users to navigate and many of them might think you are not a reputable company. We therefore strongly recommend that you add your logo, which in most cases should be your logo or part of it.

In this article, we will show you three ways to add a Favicon to your WordPress website.

Through the WordPress Customizer

This way of uploading a favicon is relatively quick and easy. The four most common sizes are automatically generated when you add an icon to your website via the WordPress settings. The uploaded image must be at least 512 x 512 pixels. WordPress automatically creates the other sizes from this original file.
