This question already has an answer here:

I was messing around in blender when I noticed that my view was snapped to an object. When I moved it so did my view.

What is this feature and how can I enable/disable it?

This is a feature called View Lock, wich is enabled by pressing Shift + Numpad ., and disabled by pressing Alt + Numpad ..

You can also access it from the menus like so:

Clear View Lock
