How to change the favicon in Magento 2

The journey of configuring your storefront branding is not over. In this blog, we’ll continue with how to change the favicon in Magento 2. Let’s get started right away!

What is a Favicon?

What is a favicon? Well, just look at the browser tab of your Magento website. You will see a little icon next to the page title. That’s it. For those who have not known yet, the word favicon stands for “favourite icon”. So it plays a pivotal role in your website. The favicon is helpful for recognition in a browser full of tabs and also for your store branding. 

Magento suggests that the dimension of your favicon image should be 16×16 pixels or 32×32 pixels in size. The accepted image format are ICO, PNG, APNG, GIF, and JPG (JPEG). If possible, use ICO format because it’s most widely supported (the others may not respond to some browsers).
