The implicit grant type is similar to authorization code grant type as it will be redirected to an authorization server. However, unlike the authorization code grant type, it will be redirected along with an access token instead of an authorization code. The implicit grant type does not authenticate the client and instead relies on the presence of the resource owner and the registration of the redirection URI.

The diagram below illustrates the implicit grant flow.
