Indirect detection is one of the most promising ways to search for dark matter in astrophysics. It involves searching for an excess of Standard Model particles on top of standard astrophysical backgrounds. Gamma-rays, X-rays, neutrinos, anti-protons, and positrons are typically used in indirect detection. In this talk, I will give a brief overview of the various techniques used in indirect detection of dark matter. I will discuss the latest status on various astrophysical anomalies and their interpretation in terms of a dark matter signal.
