What is a Favicon?
A favicon (short for favorite icon) is a 16x16 pixel icon used on web browsers to represent a website or a web page brand.
What is the purpose of a Favicon?
The main purpose of a favicon is to help make it easier for visitors to locate your page when they have multiple tabs open.
How to add a favicon to your Wix site
In order to upload your own favicon you must first:
Upgrade your site to a Premium Plan.
After upgrading your Wix site and connecting a domain, you are now able to upload a favicon to your website.
Change or add a favicon to your Wix website
