This tutorial will show you the way to add a site icon to your Blog based on WordPress 4.3+.
Favicon is a tiny image that appears next to your website title in the browser. It helps your users identify your website and more frequent visitors of your site will build an instant recognition for that tiny image.

Scroll down to the Site Icon section.
Click on the Select File button and then upload the image you want to use as site icon:

That’s it, now you can preview your site and see your favicon in action.
