Dark photons appear in many well-motivated dark matter scenarios, which
leads to a worldwide effort to search for them. In this talk, I will present
two novel search methods for dark photons at the LHCb experiment. One is an exclusive
search in charm meson decay, and the other is a fully data-driven
inclusive search based on di-muon resonances. These searches advance particle physics by
showing how LHCb can have sensitivity to large regions of unexplored dark-photon
parameter space.
