Note: The favicon filename should be favicon.ico, like in the above screenshot.

  1. Reload your nuxt app to see the new favicon.

If your favicon is in .png format instead of .ico, then you need to update your nuxt.config.js file with the following filename.

nuxt.config.js
export default {
  mode: 'universal',
  target: 'server',
  head: {
    title: process.env.npm_package_name || '',
    meta: [
      { charset: 'utf-8' },
      { name: 'viewport', content: 'width=device-width, initial-scale=1' },
      { hid: 'description', name: 'description', content: process.env.npm_package_description || '' }
    ],
    link: [
      { rel: 'icon', type: 'image/x-icon', href: '/favicon.png' }    ]
  },

The favicon.png file is present inside the static folder.
