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 another. The most widespread use of a TXT record is to add your site to an Internet search engine or to an analytics platform, that offers info about the targeted traffic to your Internet site. Creating this sort of a record may serve as verification that you're the domain owner and they will supply the content that you should include as the value when you set up the record. Another purpose of a TXT record is to confirm that an e mail message is sent by the Internet domain owner and from a reliable web server - this is the so-called SPF security, which prevents any electronic address set up under your domain name to be forged and unauthorized people to send out spam making it appear like it was sent from your own mailbox. You could include any other info which you want to be associated with your domain in a TXT record as well.
