In the most common situation, this kind of record is employed to prove that you own a domain if you are trying to add it to an online search engine or to some site traffic analytics platform. Due to the fact that only the domain owner/administrator may add custom DNS records, the TXT record works as a proof of ownership for the corporation supplying the service. Another popular use for this sort of records is the e-mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) security, which makes sure that a particular email address won't be spoofed and that others will not get unsolicited mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record includes information about the mail server where your online messages originate from and functions as validation that it is a trusted one. Since there are no restrictions concerning the content of this sort of a record, you could add any other info also.
