[squid-users] ntlm_auth defaulting to succeed

Hello All

We have been using Squid and ntlm_auth for many years with mainly 
success.  However we have always had a few annoyances like continual 
authentication pop-ups if a user has changed their password and not 
restarted their session or, as now, persistent popups which seem related 
to a browser update (Google Chrome is the suspect currently).

It occurred to me that thee days we don't use ntlm_auth to block 
Internet access per se but rather to capture the username to manage 
access using ACLs  and the username.

So I was wondering if anyone had any ideas for a Squid config where the 
ntlm_auth helper always succeeded regardless of the password  so they 
user gets waived through and Squid has the username needed to process 
the ACLs?
