The embeddable does not support password flow authentication. That is why it requires the app to be "browser based" and uses authorization flow authentication.

Thanks for your reply. we have a call center support team who should answer the customer queries. After implementing this widget in our application every time our call center team should login our web application first and then they should login embeddable widget to attend calls which is taking more time for our support team in this login process through this authentication flow. Can u please suggest a better way in this login process.

Any embedded or browser based application will always have Authorization Code flow which is more secure and provides better security and you need to follow that steps.

"RingCentral supports the Authorization Code flow for apps that can protect a client secret and Implicit Grant flow for apps that cannot (e.g. a browser-only application). "

Here is full details:
