Favicons (short for “favorites icon”) ensure that your site is quickly identified when multiple tabs are open in a browser. It also helps users quickly scan to find a website in a list of browser bookmarks.

The IEEE favicon is a 16×16 pixel square icon that appears in the latest versions of digital browsers’ address bars, tabs, and bookmarks.

All official IEEE sites are required to use the IEEE favicon, or an approved IEEE sub-brand favicon, as a way to improve user experience and leverage the IEEE brand. Color can be customized to align with the color themes of the site. Contact the Digital & Creative Innovations team for review.

IEEE websites can use a sub-branded favicon, if the sub-brand is brand compliant. Examples of IEEE sub-brand favicons include:
