Removing default favicon from WordPress

✔ Recommended Answer

You can just remove this line in header.php:

<link rel="icon" type="image/png" href="" />

It isn't loaded automatically, so you can't remove it using a filter/remove_action.

To remove the default favicon from your WordPress website, you can follow these steps:

  1. Log in to your WordPress dashboard and navigate to Appearance > Theme Editor.
  2. In the Theme Editor, locate the header.php file and click on it to open it.
  3. Look for the line of code that starts with <link rel="shortcut icon" or <link rel="icon".
  4. Delete this line of code.
  5. Click on the "Update File" button to save your changes.

Alternatively, you can use a plugin like Favicon by RealFaviconGenerator to upload your own favicon and have it automatically replace the default one.

Note: It's always recommended to make a backup of your website before making any changes to the code.
