A favicon, or favorites icon, is a small square image or logo that appears next to a web address. You can find favicons on your browser tabs, as well as on browser pages that list web addresses, such as the bookmarks page. You can add a favicon to your online store to help strengthen your brand and to add a polished look to your website.

The ideal size for a favicon is either 16x16 pixels or 32x32 pixels. If your favicon file is too large, then it will be reduced to 32x32 pixels when you upload it to Shopify.

From your Shopify admin, go to Online Store > Themes. Find the theme that you want to edit, and then click Customize. Click Theme settings. Click Favicon.

In the Favicon image area, click Select image, and then do one of the following:

  1. To select an image that you have already uploaded to your Shopify admin, click the Library tab.
  2. To select an image from your local computer, click the Library tab, and then click Upload.

Add alt text to your favicon image:

  1. Click Edit.
  2. In the Edit Image window, enter a brief description of the image.
  3. Click Save.

Click Save.
