It’s very uncommon problem i heard. Because as per as online wallet is a strongly secured. Just chatting on facebook’s messenger that's why wallet is got hacked it’s absolutely bullshit. I think he stored wallet private key or seed in facebook or share with others in unintentionally or something like that's happened. Because it’s not a easy to hack offline wallet. It’s definitely leaked from facebook’s messenger. He make big mistake to kept hold private key in online.

Offline wallet does not mean safe from thieves, they do everything they can to satisfy their depraved appetite. I've also experienced it, I was almost frustrated, because the only way to avoid it is to maintain the privacy of the private key, don't let others know ... that's all, and don't easily click on any links from strangers .

Don't really understand what you are trying to say. An offline wallet is completely safe and you can't click any links from scams since the wallet is offline and never connected to the internet, it's impossible to get anything stolen.

If you are one of those people that buys a Lambo and get a Bitcoin license plate and one day you are held with a gun to your face to reveal your private key then it's your own fault for showing off.

Many get targeted that way it's not only crypto investors, you look rich and you might become a target and forced to withdraw funds from an ATM.

A offline wallet is very safe as long as you have basic common sense.

Did OP really meant offline wallet? instead of online wallet? It seems like its not a typical typo for me.
No matter how I comprehend the kind of situation, I cant end up a better scenario for this except that guy who chatted your friend was a freakin magician Cheesy.

There's no freakin way to steal a hardware wallet through online conversations.

How did your "friends's" offline wallet get hacked through chat, OP?  I don't think it has any connection with chatting, but your friend's device could be hacked or infected by SpyWare and the private key was written there somewhere else and the hacker was able to snoop in your friend's files. Just my guess, OP.

In my opinion your friend private key was save in messager and other people knows that then it simply possible to hack although this is not offline wallet man. Even you can store your private key in hardware device then i hope hacker will not attack your wallet. Don't be putting your private key any others site because hackers will give you more offer.

my friends lost his coins from offline wallet when he was chatting online on facebook messenger
sure he can't restore his coin
so how can protect offline wallet ?
Are you serious with your friend lost coin from offline wallet? I think very safety is you save your coin in offline wallet or using ledger hard ware, no body know hoe to stole coin safe in offline wallet because only your friend have access with hard ware wallet where he saves coin, maybe your friend give hard ware wallet to other people and give data for log in to his wallet.

How could you have a clue about he might stored/write the private key on messenger? lol it sounds random guesses to me. OP didn't elaborate the whole story specifically and I believe everyone here is clueless about what's happening that causing he lost the coins inside his offline wallet.

We don't even know what kind offline wallet he used ... is it a paper wallet? An USB wallet like trezor...? Or what it is exactly. I feel safe enough to have paper wallet where the crucial moment to me when you want to access this offline paper wallet you have to be careful about the spyware that could always records your private key whenever you input them.

That's all what I can say ..

Your friend must not send his private key to anyone via social media, or store it anywhere. They should have written it down on a piece of paper and stash it somewhere where no one would find it, at best. Other than that, treat the offline wallet as an offline wallet, meaning don't have it connected to the internet-enabled computer any longer than it needs to be connected for coin transfers to take place. Other than that, try not to lose it or have it stolen, and all should be well. As for restoring the coins, if they were stolen from the wallet, meaning sent to another address in a transaction done by a third party, those coins are gone. Crypto transactions are irreversible.

I think there are still a lot of possibilities to consider on why your friend lost his funds in his wallet. But the closes thing that I can't think of is a malware that is inside of his computer. Other things such as saving it in another computer or he saved something important in messenger that someone might've seen.

Maybe he was victim of phishing sites when he talks mostly on social media and links was sent to her and after clicking then you are already a victim ,you know how to protect your wallets from offline and online?stop engaging in social media and never click any links camping from random people instead from a tested people only so you are not prone from these scammers And hackers

That is the only reason why because mentioned that she was talking to a messenger and maybe giving a link or something like clickbait

Hackers can't reach offline wallets so they are safe but your freind might have been attacked when he was onliine on messenger and they stole the access to private keys at that time.So never store them in online way.

my friends lost his coins from offline wallet when he was chatting online on facebook messenger
sure he can't restore his coin
so how can protect offline wallet ?
I still don’t get the correlation between chatting on Facebook and someone loosing offline wallet, the only way it would even have been possible is on online wallet, except maybe during the cause of the chat, he must have been carried away with the woman he was chatting with lol, and then exposed his password and his private keys to the person which should have been kept as secret, or could it be that he visited a site that had malware and them got installed on the computer which was able to give them access to the offline wallet.

The best way he can protect his offline wallet is to have it in a gadget he will not be using to visit all these websites, or just make use of hardware wallet like NANO because those are still the ones that can actually give him the safety that he needs and even at that, he needs to be careful of the information that he gives out when having chat with someone irrespective of how close the person is.

Offline wallet does not mean safe from thieves, they do everything they can to satisfy their depraved appetite. I've also experienced it, I was almost frustrated, because the only way to avoid it is to maintain the privacy of the private key, don't let others know ... that's all, and don't easily click on any links from strangers .

It is safe, unless they are going to force you to give them your private keys personally, I can't think of any ways on how someone could stole your coins in an offline wallet, that's mysterious, and can you please tell the whole story to let me get your point, that'll be much appreciated and we could easily give our opinions on what you are going to do next time to protect your offline wallet.

How did your friend lost it while chatting if it is an offline wallet?
But to answer your question you should just be careful on what you would do with your wallet and where you would access it,
Don't easily trust people and don't enter from an unknown and untrusted sites.

The best way to protect your hardware wallet is by not sharing your private key or seed phrases with anyone. Do not share private key or seed phrases with anyone regardless of whether on Facebook charts, Whatsapp chart, Skype or Telegram. Beware of scammers because they are everywhere.

Your friend must not send his private key to anyone via social media, or store it anywhere. They should have written it down on a piece of paper and stash it somewhere where no one would find it, at best. Other than that, treat the offline wallet as an offline wallet, meaning don't have it connected to the internet-enabled computer any longer than it needs to be connected for coin transfers to take place. Other than that, try not to lose it or have it stolen, and all should be well. As for restoring the coins, if they were stolen from the wallet, meaning sent to another address in a transaction done by a third party, those coins are gone. Crypto transactions are irreversible.
Why is your friend shared his private on Facebook chat? Now, this is a valuable lesson for you to learn, never share your private key with anyone anywhere. Always save your private key in a secure environment. Save it on a paper or flash drive and then hide it somewhere only you can find it.

Does the wallet is hardwallet? if so then it can't be hack just like that it has a private key I conclude that while he's chatting I think I trusted that person that he gave his password or the private key itself that's a hypothesis number one the two is that your friend account on messenger got hack and I think the saved passwords and private key are there. There are many ways to have wallet got hack but its not on the wallet, but nevertheless let me gave you a tip that you should be careful on whom you trusted and always be wise.

Failure itself becomes the main until our wallet is not safe. if we don't make a crucial mistake it's clear that the existing wallet is also safe.
the most crucial mistake is to often open email links from those we don't know and open the web that we often use from Google. 
links email and fake web , always making your wallet open and retrieve.

we all do confused by the case that op tried to elaborate.

it is just non sense with that short unfinished story, or maybe i suspect that he has problem in his english, no wonder.
an offline wallet like paper wallet seems easier to use and cost not as much as hardwallet like the ledger NANO , trezor , keepkey etc. which one op used? we have no idea and guess  i think he is just using paper wallet .
however i think op did not responded anymore to this thread meanwhile let's report to mod to lock this thread and if someone interested to create a thread about how to maintain/keep an offline wallet secure, would be great , i maybe making one later.
