TXT is a DNS record, that contains information in human-readable form for external sources to obtain information regarding a particular domain or subdomain. In the most common scenario, such a record is used to prove that you own a domain name in case you're trying to add it to an Internet search engine or to some traffic analytics platform. Considering that just the domain address owner/administrator can add custom DNS records, the TXT record serves as a proof of ownership for the company supplying the service. Another popular use for this sort of records is the email SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, which makes sure that a particular email address isn’t spoofed and that people will not get junk mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record contains info about the mail server where your digital messages originate from and functions as proof that it's a trusted one. Since there are no restrictions about the content of this kind of a record, you can add any other info as well.
