This article describes all features that can be used while searching for icons.
The search for icons is based on icon tags. Each icon is tagged with 2-7 keywords that are related to what the icon represents. Our search is smart and powerful so you can narrow down the results and find exactly what you're looking for. You can begin searching by typing your keywords in the search bar.
1. Filter your results
Filter by price
Iconfinder offers free and premium icons. You can choose between browsing through Free, Premium, or icons of All prices.
Filter by style
If you are looking for icons in a particular style, you can filter your results accordingly. Either choose the style from the menu or type it in the search bar.
Filter by categories
When you are looking for icons within a specific category, you can choose the devoted one from the dropdown menu.
Filter by license
Different licenses allow different uses, so you can narrow down the search results to icons for commercial use, icons that don't require attribution, or premium icons covered by the Basic License. If you are looking for free icons for commercial use, don't forget to turn on the Free filter too.
Show only the handpicked icon gems
The Iconfinder team features the most beautiful sets in the Staff Picks. Filter your search to only get the best out of our icons.
Use multi-word search
If you enter a number of different keywords in the search, the results will only include icons tagged with both words. This narrows down the results to show exactly what you are looking for. For example, when searching for a fruit basket, you won't have to scroll through a number of random baskets or fruit icons.
Use the search bar intuitively
The search recognizes designer's names, set names, and styles. Simply type the designer's name, set name, or a specific style into the search bar together with the searched keyword. The results will show all matching icons. For example, Maxicons flat amazon or Laura Reen file filled outline. You can also type in free to only get free icons in results.
Search inside an icon set, icon family, or on a designer's profile
If you're looking for a specific icon in a set, family, or from a certain designer, simply type in the keyword behind the name "bubble" like in the screenshot below.
Special characters and spell check
The search corrects your typos. If you type in faceboko, results for facebook will show. It also recognizes special characters as tags if needed. You can search for @,-,?,+, etc.
Results include synonyms and suggest related searches
Our brains can disappoint us just when we try to find the exact word for something. The search is designed to show not only icons tagged with the searched term but also its synonyms. For example, NYC will include icons tagged New York City.
Furthermore, you will see a list of suggested terms that are related to your keywords.
You have the option to include or exclude explicit content from your search results. The explicit label is placed on mature content that is not suitable for a work environment or underage viewers. Turn on your safe search in the search settings from the drop-down menu.
