How Do I Remove Webflow Favicon?

Do you want to remove the Webflow favicon from your website? Perhaps you want to replace it with your own custom favicon or simply remove it altogether. In this tutorial, we will walk you through the steps on how to easily remove the Webflow favicon from your website using HTML.

What is a Favicon?

A favicon is a small icon that appears in the browser tab next to the page title. It helps users easily identify and differentiate between multiple open tabs. Favicon stands for “favorite icon” as it was originally used by web browsers to display an icon next to bookmarked websites.

How does Webflow add a Favicon?

When you create a new project in Webflow, it automatically adds a default favicon to your website. This default favicon is typically the Webflow logo or an icon related to your project’s theme. However, you can easily customize or remove this default favicon using HTML.

Removing the Webflow Favicon

To remove the Webflow favicon from your website, follow these simple steps:

  • Step 1: Open your HTML file in a text editor or code editor of your choice.
  • Step 2: Locate the <head> tag within your HTML file. This is where you need to make changes.
  • Step 3: Within the <head> tag, find the line of code that looks like this: <link rel="icon" type="image/png" href="your-favicon-url.png">
  • Step 4: Remove or comment out this line of code by adding “<!–” at the beginning and “–>” at the end, like this: <!--<link rel="icon" type="image/png" href="your-favicon-url.png">-->
  • Step 5: Save your HTML file.

That’s it! You have successfully removed the Webflow favicon from your website. Now you can either leave it as is without a favicon or replace it with your own custom favicon.

Replacing with a Custom Favicon

If you want to replace the Webflow favicon with your own custom favicon, follow these additional steps:

  • Step 1: Prepare your custom favicon image. It should ideally be in .ico format, although some modern browsers also support .png, .jpg, or .gif formats.
  • Step 2: Save your custom favicon image in the root folder of your website project. Ensure that the filename is “favicon.ico”.
  • Step 3: Within the <head> tag of your HTML file, add the following line of code: <link rel="icon" type="image/x-icon" href="favicon.ico">
  • Step 4: Save your HTML file.

Congratulations! You have successfully replaced the Webflow favicon with your own custom favicon. Make sure to refresh your website in the browser to see the changes.


If you don’t see any changes after removing or replacing the favicon, try clearing your browser cache. Sometimes, browsers store the favicon in cache, and it may take a while to reflect the changes.

By following these steps, you can easily remove or replace the Webflow favicon on your website using HTML. Customizing your favicon helps to create a unique brand identity and enhance the overall user experience. Remember to save your HTML file after making any changes and test it in different browsers to ensure consistent results.
