Use The Favicon For Software Integration

By default the software integration will not use this icon. For it to display you need to set the URL to your favicon. Head to:

WordPress Admin > Wizard Panel > Software Integration

Scroll down to Favicon URL and set the URL of your favicon. You can find the URL within the Media page of WordPress. Find and click on the icon then copy the File URL.

Your integration software will now display your favicon after re-syncing the header/footer.
