Miranda rights are the 5th Amendment rights that attach to any sort of interaction that someone has with law enforcement, so when Miranda is read at the beginning of a police interaction, police will actually tell you, you have a right to remain silent, anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. That comes down from a case, which was Miranda v. Arizona, a very famous US Supreme Court case, and what it essentially does is it protects someone’s rights in terms of a custodial interrogation with police. It ensures that they are aware that they have certain rights, as far as a right to remain silent, as well as a right to an attorney.
