A salt is something you add to the password before you hash it to make it harder to crack.

For example the password is
admin

A hacker can make a database with all kinds of known words and passwords and their hashes and search his database for the hash and he will know it was “admin”

However if you add a salt to the password admin to make it a set of characters a hacker will not have in his database he wont find the hash.

salt = F%[email protected];f-Y5UQ~<}|c(1M$|TO[I!=U adminF%[email protected];f-Y5UQ~<}|c(1M$|TO[I!=U
