  2. Under the Appearance tab, click Customize

  4. Choose the image you wish to use for your favicon and click Select
  5. Crop the image to how you would like to it to appear on your site
  6. Click on Crop Image
  7. Click Save & Publish at the top left

And there you go! Adding a favicon to your site is an easy way to maintain a consistent brand identity for your business.
