A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, which holds data in human-readable form and not code. It may be created for a domain address or a subdomain for many different purposes. Search engines like Google, for instance, have different ways of confirming that you are the owner of a certain domain name and one of them is by creating a TXT record with specific text which they provide and that you should use as the record value. The exact same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your Internet sites as well. Needless to say, in such a case the content of the record will be read by a robot, but it'll still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is furthermore employed when you activated the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails in order to protect them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains information showing that a certain electronic message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any type of other information as well, just like your company details, for example.
