What's the use?

The comments came after it emerged that attacker Khalid Masood had checked WhatsApp – which offers end-to-end encryption – two minutes before ploughing an SUV through pedestrians on Westminster Bridge

If this "terrorist" did use WhatsApp to flag what he was about to do I want to see how the authorities can locate the message, track down the individual and react in time to stop the attack in the two minute window.
