A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, that is associated with an Internet domain as a DNS record for one purpose or another. The most typical use of a TXT record is to add your site to a search engine or to an analytics platform, that offers details about the web traffic to your website. Setting up such a record may serve as proof that you're the Internet domain owner and they will provide the content that you ought to include as the value when you set up the record. Another use of a TXT record is to verify that an e mail message is sent by the Internet domain owner and from a trusted web server - this is the so-called SPF protection, which helps prevent any electronic address created under your domain name to be forged and unauthorized individuals to send out unsolicited mail making it look like it was mailed from your own mailbox. You can include any other information that you would like to be associated with your domain address in a TXT record as well.
