A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, that's associated with a domain address as a DNS record for one purpose or other. The most popular use of a TXT record is to add your web site to an online search engine or to an analytics platform, that provides information about the targeted traffic to your web site. Creating this kind of a record serves as confirmation that you're the domain name owner and they will provide the content you should include as the value when you set up the record. Another purpose of a TXT record is to confirm that an email message is sent by the domain address owner and from a trusted web server - this is the so-called SPF security, that helps prevent any electronic address set up under your domain to be forged and unauthorized people to send out spam making it look like it was mailed 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.
