I changed the favicon for my Community. I would like to have a favicon for my internal users who are accessing Salesforce Enterprise. Is this possible?

  • It's an interesting question. I can't think of any way to do it but I've been wrong before.

  • Jayant...the information you provided tells me how to put a favicon on a Community. I am looking to change the favicon for my internal Salesforce users (if possible). Aug 23, 2018 at 19:20
  • Ah, I didn't realized that it was for community.

This may not be exactly what you are looking for, but it is a Chrome browswer extension that will override the default Salesforce icons:


According to the description:

Overrides the standard salesforce favicon with one colored based on the org. Also, displays a separate icon for sandbox instances.

Automatically updates the icon for salesforce.com to display a colored cloud icon based on the current instance. Also, includes a separate icon with an 'S' to indicate sandbox instances.

Now supports Lightning Experience!

Also, it may be possible to customize the solution that the author has provided.

UPDATE: I am editing the answer in response to a comment. I have no affiliation at all with the author of the Google chrome extension I cited.

I did confirm that changing the "favicon" in any html page requires a modification to the HTML tag. The Salesforce platform is never going to allow code that manipulates their generated HTML markup.


A browser extension to customize the icon may be the only way to do this, and this browser extension is fairly highly rated. A potential downside is that it requires access to read and modify data from websites that you visit.

Also, you may want to take a look at some of the comments on the Chrome extension's "Support" page. If Doug Ayers has installed this extension and got it to work in SF Lightning experience by tweaking a javascript file, that's something to consider.

    I didn't vote you down, but it might improve your post to explicitly disclose your affiliation or lack thereof with this product.

    I am very leary of Chrome extensions because of the many security issues with them. I don't think I will use that solution. Thank you for the suggestion. Jan 7, 2019 at 15:40

    Point of clarification: changing a favicon can be accomplished in two ways, either by setting a <link rel="icon" . . . /> tag in the page header or by directing the request for GET /favicon.ico to a different image file (which itself can be accomplished either by placing a file in the web root directory or by a server URL rewrite rule). Of course, none of these methods are currently supported, but Salesforce could do so without giving raw HTML editing capabilities to end users.
