A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, that's associated with a domain name as a DNS record for one purpose or other. The most popular use of a TXT record is to add your site to an Internet search engine or to an analytics platform, which provides information about the targeted traffic to your site. Setting up this type of a record functions as proof that you are the domain owner and they will provide the content that you should include as the value when you set up the record. Another use of a TXT record is to confirm that an email message is sent by the domain owner and from a trusted server - this is the so-called SPF protection, which prevents any electronic address set up under your domain name to be forged and unauthorized individuals to send unsolicited mail making it appear like it was sent from your own mailbox. You may include any other info you want to be associated with your Internet domain in a TXT record as well.
