The favicon is called a site icon in WordPress and can be added in the customize theme section.
- Log in to your WordPress website.
- When you’re logged in, you’ll be in your ‘Dashboard’
- Click on ‘Appearance’ and then Customize.
- Click on ‘Site Identity’.
Here you can define your site name, tagline, logo, and icon. The image you set under “Site Icon” will be used as your site’s favicon.
