A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, which is associated with a domain name as a DNS record for one purpose or other. The most common use of a TXT record is to add your site to an Internet search engine or to an analytics platform, which provides details about the traffic to your Internet site. Setting up this type of a record functions as confirmation that you are the domain owner and they will supply the content that you need to include as the value when you set up the record. Another application of a TXT record is to validate that an email message is sent by the Internet domain owner and from a trusted server - this is the so-called SPF security, which prevents any electronic address set up under your domain to be forged and unauthorized individuals to send spam making it appear like it was sent from your own mailbox. You may include any other info that you would like to be associated with your domain address in a TXT record as well.
