Facebook debate: Does encryption make us safer?

Is WhatsApp encryption making us safer or is it making it easier for criminals to communicate confidentially?More dangers with encryption
One aspect of encrypting WhatsApp messages is good. For people communicating, no one can see their messages and pictures anymore and confidentiality is kept. However, this will also help criminals directly talk to their criminal friends for sabotage and other interests, which could be a national security threat. This cannot be ignored. There are more possibilities for potential threats than the offering of safety. Secure products may not take care of the safety of others as one would hope.
