Can Public Users Access Azure AD B2C Tokens?

Hunter B 705 Reputation points

I've been using Azure AD B2C lately and came across this documentation about Azure AD B2C access tokens. This has me wondering if it's possible for users to request access tokens publicly to access APIs, given that they have information such as the client ID of my app registrations. Sorry if this is a silly question, I'm still pretty new to B2C.
