Looker can be customized to remove references to Looker and show your company’s branding. In the Looker Admin panel, the Whitelabel page lets you load custom logos and customize whether to show or hide certain links to Looker.
This topic explains how to enable whitelabeling and how to use the following sections on the Whitelabel admin page:
- Documentation Links
- Email Subscription Options
- Help Menu
- Custom Favicon
- Custom Logo
- Custom Document Title
- Looker Mentions and Links Back to Looker
The Whitelabel option must be enabled for your instance by Looker. Contact your Looker account manager for pricing and additional information.

The Docs option in the Help menu:
The Help link in the Custom Filters panel:
The question mark icon in the matches (advanced) option in the Filters panel:
The questions mark icon next to the Show Comparison option in Single Value Chart visualizations.

After setting the switch to ON, Looker displays buttons to let you choose your icon files and upload them. The logos must be in an .ICO, .PNG, or .GIF file format. The large logo should be 210x84 pixels in size, and the small logo 100x40 pixels. Both files must be 500KB or smaller.
Custom Document Title
Set this switch to ON to enter a custom document title. Looker displays the document title in the browser tabs and windows:
The document title usually shows a user’s location within the Looker application, but Looker will display the custom document title when there is not an available specific document title.
Looker Mentions and Links Back to Looker
By default, scheduled emails include a link that reads “View this data in Looker”:
This link lets the email recipients connect to your Looker instance and further explore the data delivered in the email. The Looker Mentions in Scheduled Emails and Links Back to Looker in Scheduled Emails switches let you remove the reference to Looker, remove the link, or remove both:
To change the text of the link to “View this data,” set Looker Mentions in Scheduled Emails to Off.
To remove the link and add a sentence that says “Generated by Looker” to the bottom of the email, set Links Back to Looker in Scheduled Emails to Off.
To remove both the link and the reference to Looker, set both Looker Mentions in Scheduled Emails and Links Back to Looker in Scheduled Emails to Off.
