What Is a Favicon? How Do I Create One?

A favicon is a little 16×16-pixel icon that serves as your website’s identity. Favicons perform best as simple images or one to three characters of text due to their small size. Favicons are not to be mixed with logos, though they are often used interchangeably. The Favicon may require an even lower sizer or portion of its original logo due to its modest size and resolution.

Favicons are small symbols that appear next to everything on your website that identifies it. Bookmarks, tabs, history results, toolbar apps, and search bars are all examples of this.
