Hi,

Out of these two examples what is the better password, by better I mean Safer and harder to crack, bypass, guess

Password 1 -   myp4ssword

Password 2 - my1972password

I guess im asking for know attacks like "Dictionary attack" is a number right in the middle of the password just as safe to make it not found in a Dictionary or is it best to replace random characters with numbers ??

Thanks
IT
