Exotic decays of the Standard Model (SM)-like Higgs boson into beyond-the-SM particles are predicted in a wide range of well-motivated theories. The enormous samples of Higgs bosons that have been and will be produced at the Large Hadron Collider thus constitute one of the key discovery opportunities at that facility, particularly in the upcoming high-statistics, high-luminosity run. Here we review recent theoretical work on models that predict or accommodate exotic Higgs decays, survey the status of current experimental searches, and look forward to future capabilities at dedicated Higgs factories and beyond.
