What Is a Favicon Weebly?

Last updated on September 28, 2022 @ 5:58 pm

A favicon (short for “favorites icon”), also known as a shortcut icon, website icon, tab icon, URL icon, or bookmark icon, is a file containing one or more small icons, associated with a particular website or web page. Favicons are used in various places: Website favicons appear in the address bar of the browser when visiting the site.

Favicons may also be displayed next to the site’s name in a list of bookmarks. For example, the Wikipedia favicon is a globe.

When adding a shortcut to the home screen of an iPhone, iPad or Android device, the favicon may also be used as the shortcut’s icon.

PRO TIP: The favicon is a small image that appears in the browser’s address bar next to the website’s name. It is also used in the bookmark bar and in the tabbed browsing interface.

Some web browsers allow the favicon to be animated.

Some Weebly users have reported that their favicons have been changed without their knowledge or consent. If you notice that your favicon has been changed, you should check your website’s code to see if there is any malicious code injected. You should also change your password and update your security settings.

The file format for favicons is ICO (Icon Image File Format), which is a file format used for storing computer icons. ICO files can contain multiple sizes and color depths. The PNG (Portable Network Graphics) and GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) file formats can also be used for favicons.
