I want to encrypt the entire hard drive so that no one but me has access to my files. My requirement: encryption should be as reliable as possible. How can this be done?

Please read this: There you will get a very good overview about disk(volume)-encryption under Fedora. As @Panther said, you can do it at installation time or later for your current system. I suggest to plan it before installation to guarantee later a smooth an friction-free use of a production system. Take your own decision between LUKS1 and LUKS2 and calculate the performance overhead for full disk-encryption. Have a good time with Fedora, it is great.
