Magento 2 favicon format: Magento accepts ICO, PNG, JPG, and SVG file types, although not all browsers support these formats.

The most widely supported file format to use for a favicon is ICO.

Favicon is short for “favorite icon,” and refers to the little icon on the tab of each browser page.

Depending on the browser, the favicon also appears in address bar, just before the URL.There are many free tools available online that you can use to generate an ICO image or convert an exiting image to the format.By this tutorial, you don’t have to know the Magento 2 favicon path in the hosting server, all you need to do is configure in the backend, very easy right?After doing so, click to save at the bottom of the page then click to view your website.If you do not see your favicon, it's possible you need to hard refresh the page.Favicons are generally 16 x 16 pixels or 32 x 32 pixels in size. So make sure that your favicon image is already in these format before uploading to the server.
