Dark matter experiments primarily search for the scattering of WIMPs on target nuclei of well shielded underground detectors. The results from liquid scintillator experiments furthermore provide precise probes of very light and very weakly coupled particles that may be absorbed by electrons. In these proceedings we summarize previously obtained constraints on long-lived dark matter vector particles V (dark photons) in the 0.01-100 keV mass range. In addition, we provide a first projected sensitivity reach for the upcoming XENON1T dark matter search to detect dark photons.
