TXT is a DNS record, which contains information in human-readable form for external sources to gain info about a particular Internet domain or subdomain. In the most common scenario, this sort of record is used to prove that you own a domain if you're trying to add it to an Internet search engine or to some website traffic analytics platform. Due to the fact that only the domain name owner/administrator is able to add custom DNS records, the TXT record works as a verification of ownership for the firm supplying the service. Another popular use for this sort of records is the e mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, that makes sure that an email address will not be spoofed and that people will not receive unsolicited mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record includes info about the mail server where your online messages arrive from and serves as verification that it is a reliable one. Since there are no restrictions about the content of this sort of a record, you could add any other information as well.
