So ask yourself why you are not allowed to do this?
BTW, if you try to break company policy, you are likely to get
terminated from your job. If I was your admin, I would be taking up
this matter with senior management and taking steps to get you fired.
If you cannot work wthout YM or other facilities, take the matter up with management and get the policy changed.

No, you do not have that choice. That is asked by squid, which will force authentication.
