Hi there. I am reading this article and it suggested that if my distro contain a firewall with a good configuration it can help my privacy and security.

Now my question is What firewall Fedora 27 is using by default and Is its configuration good enough to don't need any configuring from me? (if not, how can I enable a good firewall and configure it?)

Fedora Workstation uses firewalld, and it blocks all ports connections all close. You can get more information here
