I just went through the same thing. In the end, after stripping the bolt with a standard p-handle hex wrench and a pipe for leverage (with another pipe over the opposing crank for counterforce), I was able to get the bolt off with a spiral bolt extractor and an Irwin Hanson adjustable tap socket.

The theoretical/manufacturer-stated reason not to is that the press fit is prone to not being as strong as intended once you've pushed the pin out and back in.

It should work for now. I can't tell visually if this model of chain is riveted or not. If it is, you will be able to push it out, but will struggle to push it back in (sometimes to the point of impossibility). Re-pressing a riveted chain also significantly reduces its strength. Try to obtain a proper master link as soon as possible though. It's nice to have ...
