How to change the favicon in WordPress website?

A favicon or site icon is a small image that appears next to your website's title in your browser. It helps users identify your site, and more frequent visitors will immediately recognize that tiny image.

This increases brand awareness and builds trust with your audience.

Most users usually have many tabs open in their browser window. This hides the site title as the number of tabs increases. Favicons help users identify your website and quickly switch to the desired tab.
