You need to enable the firewall using

sudo ufw enable

After you enable, sudo ufw status verbose should show you the following:

Status: active
Logging: on (low)
Default: deny (incoming), allow (outgoing)
New profiles: skip

To check more options use, ufw help

For more on ufw logging, see this answer:
