Pre programmed firewall for Fedora

While I've heard that an anti-virus software isn't needed very much in say a fedora that's only used at home I do think that a firewall is needed. To that extent I need to find a firewall that's pre-programmed like the ones provided by Norton and McAfee I was wondering where would I find a free one for a Fedora OS if one exists.

You probably already have it installed. If not install those packages

firewall-config
firewalld
firewall-applet
firewalld-filesystem

You can then run firewall-config to configure it.

And that has a lot of the stuff that needs to be blocked/allowed already pre-programmed? Since IDK exactly what to set and what to block or if it comes with default-deny or if I need to add that in

It all depends on your needs. For now you can leaves things as they are, as that would block the services that most people wouldn't need.
