TXT is a DNS record, containing data in human-readable form for external sources to gain info about a certain domain name or subdomain. In the most common scenario, this type of record is employed to prove that you own a domain in case you're trying to add it to an Internet search engine or to some web traffic analytics platform. Considering that just the Internet domain owner/administrator is able to add custom DNS records, the TXT record functions as a proof of ownership for the company providing the service. Another popular use for this sort of records is the e-mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) security, that makes sure that an e-mail address won't be spoofed and that others will not get junk e-mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record includes info about the mail server where your digital messages originate from and serves as confirmation that it's a trusted one. Since there are no rules regarding the content of this kind of a record, you could add any other information as well.
