To install this package, run in Emacs:

M-x package-install RET hl-column RET

Full description

Provides a local minor mode (toggled by M-x hl-column-mode) and a global minor mode (toggled by M-x global-hl-column-mode) to highlight, on a suitable terminal, the line on which point is.

You probably don't really want to use the global mode; if the cursor is difficult to spot, try changing its color, relying on blink-cursor-mode or both.
