Unable to update member using REST API Edited

When I tried to update a member, I got the result 401 "unauthorized member permission requested.".

The request I used to update the member is



The token has been generated using the API,write,account&response_type=token&name={app_name}&key={app_key}


While generating token do we need to add any other scope to get the necessary access rights?


Please help.
