TXT is a DNS record, which contains data in human-readable form for external sources to gain information regarding a particular Internet domain or subdomain. In the most common situation, this type of record is used to prove that you own a domain in case you're trying to add it to an Internet search engine or to some site traffic analytics platform. Considering that only the domain address owner/administrator may add custom DNS records, the TXT record serves as a proof of ownership for the company supplying the service. Another popular use for this type of records is the e mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, which ensures that an email address won't be spoofed and that individuals will not get spam from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record includes details about the mail server where your digital messages come from and serves as proof that it's a dependable one. Because there are no standards about the content of this sort of a record, you could add any other information as well.
