Hi Keith

It is not recommended to use localhost as a redirect. What I tend to do is set up a blank php or jsp on my website and use that as the redirectURL. This url is used to send the token to in a browser request. If the page fails or does not exist then that token is never received. The guide on Salesforce site (the one you linked to) says:
> Salesforce appends access token information to the redirect URL with the following values:
And will look like this:
1 
https://www.mysite.com/user_callback.jsp#access_token=00Dx0000000BV7z%21AR8
2

I hope this helps
